    I pretend this is Irelands Romeo & Juliet. Squeezed between two pubs..Flynns and Armstrongs ( although Armstrongs are either under-going remodelling ).

    This was a lovely place for a quick stop. The waterfall is just down a path. Beautiful, lush vegetation. The waterfall itself is worth a visit. There are a few picnic tables around and it is just across from Glencar lake. It is definitely worth a drive. Lovely and scentic drive along the way. Highly recommend.

    As I had small children and a dog with me I was unbale to venture beyond the craft shop and cafe which were all laid out in a very inviting style. The staff were very friendly and helpfu. I understand it hosts a theatre and art gallery and must be a welcome addition to the residents of Carrick

    This beautifully and authentically restored castle is worth a visit. Our guide Dara was a spectacular guide; explaining every detail of the original 15th century tower house and 17th century castle. His knowledge of history, construction techniques and culture is remarkable. The 20 minute video snd displays provide a great deal of information even if a tour is not available. Call ahead for tour times. Combine with visit to Creevylea Friary.

    Definitely worth a visit to the beautiful ruins, where the graveyard is beautifully kept and is still used. so interesting to walk around. follow the path down to the river, its so pretty. you can walk to the church from Dromahair or drive, where there is free parking.

    Just surreal to see that this old workhouse is still in use as a hospital. The top floor is open to visitors and there are informative displays and a video to watch.

    If your interested in our history then you have to search out Corracloona megalithic tomb. It was built hundreds of years ago but impressive.

    Thanks to Lee for a fantastic trip down the Shannon. He is a great instructor and added lots of interesting pieces of local stories and nature through out the tour. The river from Battlebridge to Leitrim village is an ideal place for SUP (coming from a beginner!). Thoroughly enjoyable experience!

    5 star service thanks to Eileen and Seamus and all staff. I was looking for bikes for Ukrainian children in Leitrim and they donated 2 amazing top quality bikes. It was like Christmas morning when the children saw the bikes! They really have improved these children's life's here now. So helpful and so kind of them. Highly recommend this bike hire company!!

    An amazing morning adventure. Our guide was hilarious and fab with the kids. The experience of going down the Drumshamazon and up and down in the lough will stay with my kids forever, I think. Absolutely super!
