This little gem is tucked away about 2 miles outside Lismore. It's simply fantastic! A beautiful woodland walk with historic ruins, bridge, tunnel and river! Kids love it! Great for photos! Approx 2.5-3km round trip!

There is a trail through an enchanted forest, which begins at the parking place and leads you back in a circular route. On your way you will discover Ballysaggartmore Towers. You pass through a small gate and there it stands in all its beauty. I can not describe in words. You must go and see yourself!

List ore has many interesting attractions. None more so that the Towers. Built as the entrance gatehouse to a big house. Only for the owner to run out of money after just the gatehouse was built. The attraction is up a hill and not accessible for those in wheelchairs. If the weather is fine and the rhododendrons are out then... More

Tourist information board told us about this place. Turns out that the people built the gate house and then ran out of money to complete the castle. It was beautiful, we walked through the woods and then it came into sight, what a great find!

My boyfriend and I were looking for something low-key to do while in Lismore. We came across The Towers and were so happy we did. The walk through the woods was so relaxing. The paths were easily navigable and around every corner the view looked like something out of a story book. The stone follies were gorgeous and really added... More

The architecture is beautiful, but overshadowed by the fabulous backdrop of the wooded valley. Take the time to take a walk,

The towers are situated on a tree lined hill over looking the river black water near the beautiful town of Lismore. For families visiting or living in the area with young children or dogs it's a great place to let them of the leash and let them run around and explore. A circular walk of about one and a half...

Nice scenery, interesting, just two monuments which are very grubby and need a "springclean". Too many weeds,briars and nettles on the edges of these ruins which should be cut back. Other than that, I would recommend it for a nice walk. The walkway could be extended beyond the green area above the bridge into the wood to make an even... More
