The area boasts beautiful 18th century houses and gardens to see such as Richmond House, Lismore Castle, Tourin House & Gardens and of course Cappoquin House & Gardens. Other outdoor treats include Dromana Gate (gothic-hindu architecture), Lismore heritage centre and the silence and serenity of Mount Melleray Abbey.
