Lissadell

Location

1.5 km from the village of Carney on the shore of Drumcliff Bay.

Site Description

This site is located within the Lissadell Estate which was formerly owned by the Gore-Booth family. The best known of the family is Constance who was the first woman to be elected to the British House of Commons although she did not take her seat. Lissadell House was designed by Francis Goodwin. It is opened to the public from April to September. Attractions include the walled alpine and kitchen gardens.

Although not waymarked, a very pleasant walk (The Drumcliff Bay Walk) is available at the site.  The walker is taken along a forest path which runs parallel to the public road and to a stretch of the northern shore of Sligo Bay called Drumcliff Bay.
