Leitrim A Rural Haven Enjoy a slower pace Connect with nature Slow Adventure

Welcome to Leitrim

Tucked away in the North West of Ireland, enjoying the relaxed rhythm of Ireland’s Hidden Heartlands and the untamed spirit of the Wild Atlantic Way, is the wild and spectacular county of Leitrim.­

Only a two-hour drive from Dublin and a mere 45 minutes from Ireland West Airport, Leitrim is a rural haven for families, explorers and slow adventurers who cherish a slower pace of life and spending quality time in the great outdoors.

Leitrim is quietly waiting to be explored. The dramatic mountain range of Sliabh an Iarainn, the majestic Lough Allen and our small, but picturesque coastline envelop you in their natural, wild splendour. A visit to the magical Glencar Waterfall, whose rushing waters inspired the work of WB Yeats’ ‘The Stolen Child’, will delight nature and poetry lovers alike. And our quaint villages and bustling towns invite you to enjoy the gentle good humour of the people here in Leitrim.

If you’d rather get to grips with Leitrim’s wild, rugged scenery, you will find Leitrim to be an adventure seekers playground! Enthusiasts and beginners can enjoy kayaking, canoeing or paddle boarding on the Shannon Blueway. Or try horse riding, climbing, off road cycling or surfing along the Wild Atlantic Way.

We think that travel experiences should be savoured and treasured. Our select Slow Adventure experiences help you to do just that. Removed from the pressures of urban life and surrounded by cinematic scenery, we invite you to slow down, take a deep breath and relax as you immerse yourself in nature and reconnect with the environment.

Only a two hour drive from Dublin and close to Ireland West Airport – getting to Leitrim couldn’t be easier. The genuine sincerity and friendly nature of the Leitrim people guarantees a warm welcome and excellent hospitality. Find out more about getting here, places to stay and eat.
