This image of bluebells in bloom was taken at the woodlands near Lissadell. The woods can be accessed via a little known walk that starts at the car park at the main beach and leads to you the Birdwatch Ireland hide at the edge of the Goose Field at Ballygilgan Nature reserve. The walk through the woodland just above the shoreline is one of favorite ones in Sligo.

The nearby Lissadell House has reopened in June 2014 and is set to again become one of the region’s top tourist attractions.
