The lovely village of Lurganboy is located one mile from Manorhamilton off the R280. Here the beautiful woodland area of Lurganboy is situated. In Milltown Wood you may cross by a wooden bridge, the famous river Bonet and walk its sheltered banks in peace and solitude. In 1801, McPartland in his 'Statistical Survey of Leitrim' described this area as follows – " the views about Lurganboy are extremely pretty. The demesne is naturally beautiful and the young and old plantations are arranged in a very handsome style. The road strays from the village through old woods and new plantations which are dispersed in as careless a manner as the windings of the River Bonet which ornaments them.”
