Lissan is an enchanting country house set at the heart of a 267 acre demesne and nestling in a prime location in the valley of the Lissan Water. The estate lies just 1.5 miles north of Cookstown at the foot of the Sperrin Mountains in County Tyrone.

At the centre of the community in Mid Ulster for nearly 400 years, Lissan is one of the most historically significant and stunningly beautiful landed estates in Ireland.  Seat of the Staples Baronets of Lissan and Faughanvale from 1628, the Estate and its historic collections were gifted to the community to be held in trust for the benefit of all by the last of the Staples of Lissan, Hazel Dolling, in 2006.

Following extensive restoration Lissan House opened its doors in the Spring of 2012 to reveal original interiors with modern facilities. Mid-Ulster’s premier tourist destination, Lissan House is one of Northern Ireland’s newest and most sought after wedding venues.
