On one of the county’s many driving routes you can discover rushing waterfalls, peaceful lake shores, historic sites such as Manorhamilton Castle and even venture underground to coal mining’s past at Arigna Mining Experience.

Take your pick from the Northern Glens Trail which boasts Dartry Mountain views; the Southern Waterways Trail which takes in Florencecourt House and the Marble Arch Caves the Lough Allen Drive where you’ll find Spencer Harbour; and Glenade Drive on where you can see the beautiful Glenade Lake.
