If you’d rather get to grips with wild, rugged scenery than simply admire it, then Leitrim is for you. A veritable adventure-seeker’s playground, there’s no end to the white-knuckle ways you can spend a day in the county. Showcasing the Shannon Erne Waterway, Europe’s longest inland navigable waterway, why not take to the water, paddle in hand and canoe or row this pictorial route.
If your boots were made for walking, lace them up and get hiking some of the North West’s most breathtaking peaks, including Sliabh an Iarainn and the Dartry Mountain Range. Roam the county’s rich pastures, wild boglands and hilly pathways with an off-road cycle, or even get hands-on with the landscape itself with some adrenaline-fuelled rock climbing. Whether you run, cycle, paddle or climb your way across the county, you’ll have a trip to remember.
