Bono & Adam Clayton Plant Trees In West Cork

Bono, Adam ClaytonBono and his wife Ali, along with U2 bass player Adam Clayton, paid a visit to Liss Ard Estate in Skibbereen last weekend.

They arrived on Friday afternoon and departed around noon on Sunday after touring the 163-acre luxury estate overlooking Lough Abisdealy.

A spokesperson for the estate, currently for sale, confirmed their stay at the weekend and posted a photo of the group lined up in front of a massive tree in the garden.

“Our policy here at Liss Ard is to always keep details about our guests’ visits private and discreet,” a spokesperson told The Southern Star.

The spokesman did, however, mention that Bono and his friends enjoyed some great meals over the weekend. “They were prepared using local ingredients by our superb head chef Pamela Kelleher and her team,” he said.

Bono, Ali, and Adam were joined by their childhood friend, artist Guggi, as well as other family members and friends – all of whom enjoyed the privacy of the walled estate, which is noted for its Sky Garden by James Turrell.

During the visit, Bono added to the appeal of the place by planting a flowering cherry tree near the Sky Garden while Adam planted a Sheerwater seedling.

They were just the latest in a line of celebrity musicians who have planted trees at Liss Ard. Over the years, Patti Smith, Nick Cave and Lou Reed have all made their mark by planting a tree and having their name inset into a wall near the Lake Lodge.

Liss Ard, as the website states, offers “a home from home feeling … striking the perfect balance of seclusion without solitude.”
