Leitrim county is dominated by its many beautiful waterways and rivers and in particular the town of Carrick-On-Shannon, overlooking the River Shannon on a Summers Day there is nothing quite like the view on offer. It is quite picturesque with its many boats and barges berthed in the Marina. Located just 30 minutes from Sligo and a little over 1 hour 30 minutes to Dublin, it is very accessible and well worth the effort. Leitrim has the Lough Allen sitting in the middle of the county where any number of water sport activities are available. It is no surprise that the Shannon Erne Waterway route runs through the county of Leitrim. Drumshanbo one of the towns in Leitrim set in a hilly, woodland area, overlooked by both Sliabh an Iarainn (the iron mountain) where iron ore was mined and also the Arigna mountains where coal mining took place, the history can now be found at Arigna Mining Experience Centre in County  Roscommon.

Drumshanbo, a traditional Irish town in Leitrim with a big heart, and is located close to all the water activities of Lough Allen and popular for fishing and angling and golfing with four golf courses all nearby. Drumshanbo is a great area to drive around and explore or enjoy some hill walking in Drumshanbo area and continue onto Manorhamilton a town popular for traditional Irish music and take a look around the castle ruins and heritage centre while there. 

Dromahair is a small idyllic wooded village in Leitrim which is located just a short distance from Manorhamilton and also the County of
Sligo. Dromahair has very beautiful natural landscape, located beside the River Bonet where it meets Lough Gill, and rich in history, which a walk around the village will reveal, also take the beautiful riverside walk which leads to the Creevylea Abbey a fine example of a Franciscan Friary of its time. Continue on to explore Parke's Castle in County Leitrim, just a short distance from Dromahair, this 17th century three story plantation era castle has some wonderful history with in and great views over Lough Gill. The County of Leitrim is not one to be rushed as there is so much to see and do here.
