Explore Leitrim this weekend - 15 places to visit

The view from O'Rourke's Table outside Dromahair

With school, work and weekday responsibilities you may not have been able to take advantage of the easing of travel restrictions this week. But this weekend you can break loose!


You can now travel the length and breath of Leitrim and 20km from your home into surrounding counties.


To make it easy we have put together a little ‘must see’ in Leitrim list. It is not definitive, we know that there are hundreds of gems and our county is jam packed with beauty, history and interesting sights. But take a look at the list there might be somewhere you have not seen, not visited in a while or need to return to and this weekend. We hope you enjoy exploring Leitrim!
