A Choice of Activities as you Plan your Trip!

At Slow Adventure, we believe travel experiences should be savoured and treasured. We invite you to immerse yourself in the calm caress of Lovely Leitrim. And to take on a Slow Adventure that encapsulates everything about this unique corner of Ireland. Leitrim is world famous for strong community values and spellbinding storytelling.

Our Slow Adventure Activities have been chosen to help you “take it all in” while creating lifelong memories in a friendly environment. We have selected our slow adventure activities carefully to allow you to reflect and reconnect.

Our chosen activities offer a wide range of pursuits and adventures. You can learn about bush craft in the wilds of Lough Allen. Or you can forage for food as you paddle the waterways of Leitrim. You can choose to travel by paddle-board, kayak, Canadian canoe, bicycle, horseback or by foot. There are also indoor activities including delicious slow food and the chance to find out about Connaught’s glorious past on an interactive guided tour.

Invest in an activity that is not one hundred miles an hour. Immerse yourself in an adventure that brings you closer to nature as well as your travel companions. And all the while, you can rest assured that each provider we work with are hand-picked for their quality, attention-to-detail, and environmentally-friendly credentials.
