The small, rural village of Drumkeeran lies at the foot of the Corry Mountains, a National Heritage Area and north of the expansive Lough Allen in County Leitrim between the village of Dromahair and the town of Drumshanbo. Drumkeeran is home to four pubs, a café and a local shop for essentials. One of Ireland’s most undiscovered counties, Leitrim is a paradise for angling, walking and cycling with endless routes that trail through secluded forest, shores of peaceful lakes and rolling countryside, including the Leitrim Way and the Historical Trail. Why not visit the Arigna Mining Experience or step back in time at Parkes Castle on the banks of Lough Gill? Families will adore Lough Key Forest and Activity Park whilst there are plenty more tranquil attractions, including the Moon River boat tour in Carrick-on-Shannon and the Rose of Inisfree tour boat. A superb base for exploring Counties Leitrim, Roscommon and Sligo.
