Lisheen Castle was the home of a branch of the Lloyd family from at least 1837. Altered and extended by John Lloyd, it was valued at £42+ at the time of Griffith's Valuation and held by John Lloyd in fee. The Lloyd family continued to live at the Castle until the 1880s though Slater refers to it as a seat of Mrs.Lloyd as late as 1894. It was subsequently leased and then in 1918 sold to William Bray O'Brien of Ardfort House, Thurles. When the castle was burnt in 1921 it was the property of O'Brien's daughter and son-i- law Camilla and John Francis O'Meara. In 1994 the ruins were purchased by Joan and Michael Everard who have restored the building which now offers luxury castle accommodation. see http://www.lisheencastle.com/
