    Enjoying the smallest population of any of the Irish counties, the long, hourglass-shaped outline of Leitrim shares its borders with five counties of the Irish Republic, in addition to its mutual boundary with County Fermanagh in Northern Ireland. To the north-west of Leitrim, the landscape is one of fine hills and mountains, whilst beyond Lough Allen, to the south-east lies a contrasting area of relatively flat countryside.

    Things to do in Leitrim
    The two great rivers of Leitrim are linked by the appropriately-named Shannon-Earne Waterway, an almost 40-mile stretch of canal with an interesting route which incorporates sixteen locks. The Waterway was originally envisaged in 1780; over the years, numerous setbacks, most of them of an economic nature, meant that the route was not officially completed until 1994, and it is now seen by many as a flagship project which celebrates Irish cross-border co-operation. Extensive restoration and reconstruction means that the route is now a popular navigation for modern pleasure watercraft.

    Top Destinations

    Carrick-on-Shannon – The smallest county town in Ireland is also the largest town in Leitrim. Situated on a scenic yet strategic crossing point on the River Shannon, Carrick is surrounded by some of the most unspoilt countryside to be found anywhere in Ireland, not least given its proximity to some of the elegant loughs and waterways for which the county is particularly noted. The remains of Carrick Castle, just outside the town at Carrick Bridge, are a popular stopping off point for visitors. A highly successful local Water Music Festival has been held in the town over a week each July, since 2005.

    Leitrim – On the banks of the Shannon, the village of Leitrim welcomes visitors to its recently renovated marina. Connected to the River Erne by the Shannon-Erne Waterway, the village makes a good base for exploring the local area.

    Dromahair – To the north of the county, amongst some stunning beautiful landscapes on the banks of the River Bonet, lies the village of Dromahair. A rock formation known as the 'Sleeping Giant' – actually three local mountains – is visible as you approach the village. Just beyond the village the ruins of the 16th century Franciscan Creevelea Friary are a recognised national monument.

    Kiltyclogher – Just outside the village of Kiltyclogher , and close to the border with Fermanagh, are to be found the ancient passage grave of Corracloona (also known as 'Prince Connell's Grave') and the remains of the 1st century defensive ditches known as Black Pig's Dyke.

    Glenfarne – Begun in 1999, following the cessation of the Troubles, a cross-border, cross-community arts project sited three permanent sculptures in the forests of the Glenfarne Demense, on the shores of Lough Macnean, as part of a wider creative partnership. The works aim to symbolise the contrasting landscapes and the coming together of the once-divided local communities, and utilise some fine local materials, including stone quarried in Leitrim and wood grown to the north in County Fermanagh.

    Jamestown – Once the route of the main road between Sligo and Dublin, the town is known for the narrow arch pillars of the old town gate. Following traffic damage in the 1970s the top of the arch was removed, and the gate is now said by locals to be 'headless'. Set on the banks of the River Shannon, the town is a popular stopping-off point for leisure boats. Close to the main jetty, lie the remains of an Iron Age defensive fort, the Doon of Drumsna, which was constructed in an area of shallow waters which was particularly vulnerable to the attentions of potential invaders.

    Drumsna – In addition to the aforementioned 'Doon of Drumsna', the village itself is the site of a particularly fine arched stone bridge. It was also once the home of the novelist Anthony Trollope.

    Glencar – The Lough and Waterfall at Glencar captivate visitors, not least by the way in which an otherwise rather modest stream on the edge of the imposing Benbulben forms the most impressive of cascades. Although only 50ft high, the waterfall is noted for being one of the most spectacular in all Ireland.
