This project received grant aid from Leitrim Local Community Development Committee under the Rural Development Programme which is financed by the Irish Government under the Rural Development Programme Ireland 2014-2020 and by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development: Europe investing in Rural Areas.
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.
Please note that visitor experiences in County Leitrim are currently closed.
We are all working together, adhering to Government guidelines for public health and safety.
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.
