Welcome To LeitrimExperience.ie..
The village of Keshcarrigan, the ‘High Point’ of the Shannon/Erne Waterway is situated between the Loch Scur and Kesh Lake in the shadow of the majestic Slieve an Íarann Mountain .
Steeped in an area of of historical and archaeological interest, Keshcarrigan is a place of unspoilt and natural beauty and is one of Ireland’s best kept secrets. Since the redevelopment of the Shannon/Erne Waterway and the marina facilities in the village there have been vast changes to the village, writes Martin Branagan.
Tourism has increased and many people have been introduced to the natural charm and beauty of the area. The population of the village , which had remained stagnant for decades has increased, emigrants returned to their homeplace and new people settled in the area attracted by the way of life in this rural area. However, the village is committed to maintaining rural traditions culture and way of life of a village.
Keshcarrigan has a vibrant and very active development association and community and takes great pride in enhancing the natural beauty and amenities of the area. There are several gardens in the village for the community and visitors to enjoy.
