Places of Interest

The last remaining wall of Leitrim castle can be found close the marina in Leitrim. This was the destination of Donal O'Sullivan Beare's epic fourteen day march from Glengariff.

Battlebridge: The name suggests that Battlebridge was the scene of a great battle, and there were some skirmishes in this area when General Humbert led his French forces up river to Castlebar in 1798. There is some nice mooring here and a fine old stone bridge.
