The Ballisodare River (Irish: Abhainn Bhaile Easa Dara; also spelled Ballysadare) is a river in Ireland, flowing through County Sligo.


The Ballisodare River derives from three other Sligo rivers: the Unshin River, the Owenmore River and the Owenbeg River. It flows through Ballysadare, passing under the N4 and N59 roads.


The Ballisodare River is a noted salmon and trout fishery, with the pools under Ballysadare Falls a favourite spot.
