26 Jul Lissadell, County Sligo
This is a late Georgian mansion built between 1830 to 1836.
It is in County Sligo and worth visiting on any tours of Ireland.
It is made with Ballisodare limestone and in a perfect setting.
The house was occupied by Sir Robert Gore-Booth, and his descendants lived there until 2003.
The estate was bought by the Cassidy-Walsh family in 2003 for an undisclosed sum.
After 70 years of neglect an intensive programme of restoration, without any public funding, has taken place in the House, Gardens, Stable Block and grounds since 2004.
Lissadell is once again a place of beauty.
There is also the older 17th Century Ardtermon Castle about three miles west of the ruined mansion.
It was burnt down during a ball and the ruins stand there stoically.
It is also worth a visit.
There are rental buildings available and a lot of activities also.
