Most of the tourists coming to Ireland content themselves with visiting only the main towns on the coast such as: Dublin, Cork, Galway etc. and at the end of the day, they don't have any time left to visit other areas of Ireland. It looks like County Leitrim is part of the forgotten counties and it deserves to be better known. As the county is the least populated of the island, it has kept a certain authenticity. The county seems divided in two by the Lough Allen. The South East of the county, rather flat, is dominated by the town of Carrick-on-Shannon, whereas the North East of the county has more mountainous and dramatic landscapes.
You will find below and on the right-hand side, some examples of activities to do and sites to visit in County Leitrim, in images and in text.
