What To Do

Every county has its own noteworthy people and places. Leitrim is steeped in history and tradition. It is situated in the north-west of Ireland.

Leitrim is mostly inland, except for two miles of shore facing the Atlantic. It is bordered by Roscommon and Sligo to the south and the province of Ulster to the north. It is almost divided in half by its largest lake, Lough Allen.

Co. Leitrim has been home to many great Irish writers and rebels, such as John McGahern and Sean MacDiarmada.
