This cycle trail is the first long distance cycle trails in Ireland and follows minor country roads through the counties of Cavan, Fermanagh, Monaghan, Donegal & Leitrim.
The trail naturally falls into two main loops, so it can be cycled as two separate routes or as one continuous figure of eight.
The scenery is always beautiful and often spectacular, with wonderful panoramas over Upper and Lower Lough Erne, Lough MacNean and Lough Allen, opening out from many vantage points along the way.
On the foothills of Sliabh an Iarainn in Drumshanbo Co Leitrim you will find this hidden gem.
It is an authentic distillery using traditional methods such as gleaming copper pots & column stills.
The Shed Distillery tour brings visitors on the very special journey behind the creation of Connacht’s first whiskey for 105 years, and on a trip into the epicentre of the distillery to witness the slow hand-distillation of premier ‘Grand Cru’ Irish whiskey and Drumshanbo Gunpowder Irish Gin.
The Glenview Folk Museum is located just outside Ballinamore in Co. Leitrim and is owned and ran by the Kennedy Family.
The Museum was set up in the year 2000 as it was identified that Ireland was losing its heritage and true identity. The Kennedys recognised the importance of preserving the past for the future.
The Museum has a private indoor collection of more than 7,000 antique, historical and novel items ranging from pre – Famine Ireland to the recent past. There is also an impressive array of farm yard equipment, a collection of horse drawn agricultural machinery and a thresher.
The tools and all equipment on display show the skill and ingenuity of the designers and builders of early industrial and farming equipment.
The ‘street scene’ has a number of reconstructed shops and a pub, all of them stocked with an assortment of products and equipped as they would have been in the past.
The Glenview Collection includes a fully restored travelling shop and an extensive array of household equipment and furniture, as well as noteworthy coins, paper, medals and military regalia.
