Leitrim, Ireland- The Eco-Tourist Capital
With one of the smallest coastlines at only 4 kilometres, it is not the beach that attracts people to Leitrim. In fact, it is the unspoiled nature that is easily found throughout the county. Because so little of the landscape and nature has been spoiled by progression, this small county has often been referred to as the Eco-Tourist Capital of Ireland. It’s a name that stuck with the area and seems to fit it well. There is much contrast in landscapes for such a small county with mountains, valleys, pastures, lakes, hills and rivers. However the beauty of the drumlins, waterways and glens also provide plenty of recreation for those looking to explore the outdoors. That doesn’t mean history is not present in Leitrim. Like the rest of the country you will find many landmarks to take in during your visit.
