Lissadell - Great Windows to the South

 

Lissadell was the childhood home of Countess Constance Markievicz and the inspirational retreat of Willam Butler Yeats. Set amidst the rugged splendour of majestic Ben Bulben and Knocknarea, and fronting the wild Atlantic Ocean, Lissadell was built in 1833 by Sir Robert Gore-Booth and is a magnificent country house designed by Francis Goodwin in the Greek revival style.

 

Lissadell House and Gardens is situated 3km off the Sligo/Bundoran Road, with ample coach and car parking. It’s a beautiful place for a quiet country walk.
