Top 100 Attractions Review

Lissadell House holds huge importance to not only the people of County Sligo, but for a wider Ireland also. For it was from here that two young sisters would go on to both champion all that they held dear. Constance left Lissadell to be a very prominent Irish Politician, where Eva moved to Manchester to fight for the famous women's suffragette movement. The two sisters were always bound to do well in their lives, even catching the eye of the famous poet WB Yeats, another famous inhabitant of County Sligo. Lissadell House itself looks a very foreboding building, however once inside, my heart was warmed with its beautiful furniture, grand paintings and many a story to tell by all whom I spoke to. I really enjoyed my tour around this great house, and I recommend that if you are visiting this rugged yet charming part of the West Coast.
