Lady Louisa's Walk, Lismore - Siúlóid Lady Louisa – An Lios Mór
Lady Louisa was the daughter of the 7th Duke of Devonshire, ancestor of the current owner of Lismore Castle, the 12th Duke of Devonshire. The Spout is a natural spring well that provided water for the estate workers in the castle until the early part of the nineteenth century. Lady Louisa’s walk is primarily a woodland walk along the riverbank. One can expect to find woodland plants such as beech, ash, ferns, spindle tree, holly and ivy as well as wood sorrel, golden saxifrage and wild garlic to name but a few.
From the Heritage Centre, follow the N72 towards Cappoquin, past the spout to the start of Lismore Bridge. Lady Louisa’s walk is located on the right just before the bridge. Parking is available in front of the cast iron gates.
