To have and to hold…

When Sir Thomas Staples brought his new bride to his home in the stunning valley of the Lissan Water in 1623, he adopted as his family motto the single Latin word, Teneo, meaning “I hold”. He started a four hundred year tradition of welcoming loving couples to the Lissan Estate which continues to this day. Famous throughout its history for lavish hospitality in the most spectacular of historic settings, Lissan House & Demesne provides the perfect location for a unique and most memorable day.

This stunning 400 year old house is licensed to host civil marriages and partnerships accommodating up to 100 guests in the spectacular Regency Ballroom or up to 50 in the Great Entrance Hall.

Receptions of any size may be hosted in a marquee on the lawn whilst more intimate affairs may be held in the Ballroom or Dining Room. Lissan boasts an amazing backdrop for photography with awe inspiring interior and exterior views.

Here at Lissan House we appreciate every couple has different expectations and dreams for their special day and our staff will work with you in every way to tailor our service to your wishes, whether it be a Civil Ceremony or Partnership, a Wedding Photoshoot or a Ballroom or Marquee Wedding Reception. Please contact our team to discuss your wishes.

Your love is unique – so why not celebrate in a unique setting.
