    With charming riverside towns and villages, majestic forests and sparkling waterways, Ireland’s Hidden Heartlands is slow-travel perfection

    Escape into nature in Ireland's Hidden Heartlands

    It’s the satiny sheen of a quiet canal that cuts through rolling green fields. It’s the walking trails that weave through peaty bogland where ancient Celtic rituals once took place. It’s the flash of a kingfisher darting from a riverbank. Defined by its connection to both water and land and heralded for its pure beauty, Ireland’s Hidden Heartlands is a destination that basks in nature, with under-the-radar experiences that feel like you’re getting to the real heart of Ireland.

    Fowley Falls, County Leitrim

    Sublime surroundings

    Here, amidst a natural wonderland of rivers, canals and lakes, the world slows down. Calm your soul with a paddle along glass-blue rivers, lakes and canals; walk centuries-old canal paths once used for horses drawing barges; cosy up over candlelit dinners in waterside thatched pubs; and unearth thousands of years of history in heritage parks, historic abbeys and monasteries. In Ireland’s Hidden Heartlands, it pays to take it slow.

    The pace of life is slower in County Leitrim. It is also a very beautiful landscape that is more intimate than other parts of Ireland
