We invite you to unlock the treasures of this land of castles and ancient kings, of stately homes and wonderful landscapes, where shimmering rivers, lakes and forest parks abound. In this inland county a more restrained beauty reigns, bejewelled with sparkling lakes and dancing streams. The great River Shannon, over 200 miles in length, longest in Ireland and the UK, marks the eastern county border as it meanders south through Lough Boderg and Lough Bofin (or down to Lough Ree and onward to the Atlantic Ocean!).
