Ardtarmon Castle (Private), Lisadell, Co Sligo

Its founder Sir Francis Gore was a distent ancestor of Constance Gore-Booth and founder of the Gore Booth family. It was the original home of the Gore-Booths before they moved to Lissadell in the early 18th century after a fire burned Ardtarmon to the ground. It is one of the two buildings built in the style of the Cromwell period that survive in the area. The other is Parke’s Castle on the Shores of Lough Gill in Co. Leitrim.
