Manorhamilton, which lies in the shadow of Benbo mountain, is the principal town in North Leitrim. Home of unspoilt green fields, prized angling and the seven beautiful glens of Glencar, Glenfarne, Glenaniff, Glenboy, Glenkeel, Gleniff and Glenade.

Come to North Leitrim and discover all we have to offer - lose yourself in our rivers, the lakes or in the forests and mountains that provide such wonderful scenery. Once lost you may never want to be found! 

Places of Interest in Manorhamilton 

Manorhamilton Castle around which the town of Manorhamilton grew has a dramatic and colourful history, stories of which live on in the town to this day.

The castle overlord Sir Frederick Hamilton was to become a bye word for cruelty down the centuries as a result of his brutality in suppressing uprisings led by the O’Rourke Chieftains whose land he had seized. On display is a permanent exhibition including artefacts from the 17th Century, replica period costumes, furniture, a castle model and other interesting items and information. 

Manorhamilton Castle and Heritage Centre is open all the year round to the general public and to organised tours.  A tour of the recently restored castle ruins and grounds can be taken, conducted by an experienced and informative guide.  Tours can be arranged on appointment, all visits must be arranged in advance.

Directions: Manorhamilton Castle and Visitors Centre is located on Castle Street in the centre of Manorhamilton, Co. Leitrim, Ireland.
