Carrick-on-Shannon, Ireland's loveliest riverside town, is in the county town of Leitrim, and is nestled on the most scenic stretch of the River Shannon. Internationally regarded as an angler's paradise, Carrick has hosted many national and international fishing competitions, and within a 6-mile radius, there are no less than 41 fishing lakes to enjoy. Take a walking tour of Carrick's history, enjoying a guide to the landmarks of the town, see the plaque dedicated to the famous English novelist Anthony Trollope, or visit the remains of Carrick Castle. The lands around the county borders of Sligo, Roscommon and Leitrim are amongst the most fascinating in Ireland with beautiful lakes and surrounded by the mountains containing the Carrowkeel temples to the southwest and the tall mountains to the northwest. Between these ranges are the plains of Leitrim and the dominating conical mounds known as motes or raths. These are, by legend, inhabited by the Daoine Maithe, the 'Good People'. The larger mound is celebrated in the popular poems and songs of Ireland under the name of Sigh Mor (Sheemore), and today it is lit up at night by a crucifix on its peak. With so much history to discover, Carrick's annual Water Music Festival to enjoy, and County Donegal, Londonderry and Dublin within touring distance, this is a great location for an Irish getaway.
