Why not get out and about and enjoy some of the wonderful sights throughout Leitrim.
Arigna Mining Experience
This Energy Centre provides visitors with a unique insight into what coal mining life was like in the Arigna Valley, since its beginning in the 1700’s until closure in 1990.
Cavan & Leitrim Railway
The museum that was established in 1993, is run entirely by volunteers. The museum is located beside the Irish Rail station in Dromod on the grounds of the old Cavan and Leitrim Railway yard.
Today 0.4 kilometers has been restored and remains preserved after its closure in 1959. Following the closure, all which remained in Dromod was the Station House, the engine shed and water tower. Today they have been restored and are been preserved.
Glencar Waterfall is 50ft high and is situated at Glencar Lough and served as an inspiration to the William Butler Yeats and features in his poem ‘The Stolen Child’
The waterfall is really impressive after rain and can be viewed from a lovely wooded walk. The waterfall amenity includes a children’s playground, picnic areas, café facilities, tourism information and ample parking. There are more waterfalls visible from the road although none are quite as romantic as this one.
Entry to the site is free and there is a free car park, picnic area, public toilets, playground, tearoom and Tourist Information point. This site is wheelchair friendly. Glencar Waterfall is situated 11km west of Manorhamilton, County Leitrim
