Carrick-on-Shannon Interesting : Michelin's recommendations


County town of Leitrim, the town is located at an important crossroads on the Shannon. Up until the 16C, the district was controlled by the O'Rourkes, who ruled it from their Leitrim stronghold. The town acquired its fortifications after receiving a charter from James I and continued to grow with the development of the Shannon in 1846, followed by the arrival of the railways. Its position at the upper limit for navigation on the Shannon makes it ideal for cruises and fishing.
