The composer of the song, ‘The Green, Green, Grass of Home’ may very well have had County Leitrim, Ireland in mind while he was writing the lyrics. Almost squeezing itself into north central Ireland, to the west of Belfast, County Leitrim is ‘complete with the lush pastures we associate with the country, while also presenting its rocky coast and jutting mountains. Though its coastline is short, presenting a slim countenance to the sea, it is a beautiful and delightful place to adventure in the water. County Leitrim also has gorgeous lakes and streams, and a canal lovely enough to make one long to travel by boat, rather than modern conveyance. If that weren’t enough, County Leitrim has a waterfall for which postcards were specifically designed. The county is divided between north and south by Lough Allen, a lake shaped like an upside down teardrop. It was a favorite landscape of the great Irish poet William Butler Yeats. He commemorated the Glencar Waterfall, one of the most idyllic images in Ireland, in his poem, ‘The Stolen Child.’

County Leitrim, which is named for the small town of Leitrim, located along the southwestern border of the county, is part of the province of Connacht. At its height, in 1841, the population was 155,297. The Great Famine decimated the county, reducing its population by almost 30% in 10 years. There was continued decline, though at a slower rate, until 2000, when the county began to grow from 25,000 residents to about 32,000 today.

County Leitrim is not merely an extraordinary landscape; it has magnificent stone structures from great castles to charming stone cottages. There are two castles commanding your attention. Lough Rynn Castle dates to the early 1600’s, with an even earlier Medieval castle remains still existing on the grounds. The castle as it stands was refurbished in the late 1800’s and is now a hotel.  It has large and beautiful walled gardens, an ancient bronze druid tomb, and a 400 year old tree on the estate. It offers endless hours of exploration, fine relaxing and dining, and excellent facilities for a wedding reception. Parke’s Castle sits on the banks of Lough Gill, offering lovely views, especially of sunsets over the lake. It, too, dates to the early 1600’s. Its restoration was overseen by the Office of Public Works at the close of the Twentieth Century and is now open for tourism.

Your travels through the county will take you past small stone cottages and chapels, as well as great houses and larger churches. Much of the contemporary building is in keeping with the design of the ancient structures to be seen at every turn. County Leitrim is truly an Eden in which to become lost.
