Manorhamilton Heritage Trail is an updated walking tour outlining the rich heritage, architecture and history of the town.
It is a celebration of the past but is invoking a duty of care to future generations.


The oldest building, Hamilton’s Castle dates from the mid-17th century. Within five years of the building of the castle in 1634-1636, the nucleus of the town was established.


Since that time a trail of built heritage can be traced, each century adding further treasures. Why not bring the family along, you might learn more about your local town than you ever knew.
This launch is being held during National Heritage Week when a number of events and activities are happening around the county from August 17-25 to celebrate Leitrim heritage.
