Trekking the Waterways

A slow adventure is the ideal way to explore and enjoy a landscape, its wildlife, people and hidden gems. This adventure was designed with all of this in mind.

While this may be a slow adventure, it is not lacking in adventure nor new experiences. You will explore and enjoy Leitrim’s unspoilt countryside by horseback and by bicycle. Your day also includes a visit to Ireland’s new, fully-operational and authentic distillery, The Shed Distillery and also a slow food experience in the quirky Jackalope Café.

Your experience begins with you on horseback, exploring the countryside and its rugged terrain. You will be taken on a horse trek along the water’s edge on the shores of Lough Allen. This tranquil journey will set you up for the day as you enjoy the scenery of this unspoiled countryside, overlooked by  the Sliabh an Iarainn Mountains range.

Once you dismount, you will be guided by bike to  the Shed Distillery, home to Drumshanbo Gunpowder Gin. Here you will explore the curious mind of PJ Rigney as you enjoy a guided tour of his including a special tasting of the Drumshanbo Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey and the exotic Drumshanbo Gunpowder Irish Gin in the majestic Botanical Glass House.

Before you take your leave from this truly intriguing distillery, you will enjoy a slow food experience at the Jackalope Café, known not only for its excellent cuisine but also its creative decor. A visit to the Jackalope Café is an experience in itself and yet another insight into the creative mind of this ingenious inventor.

You will continue your adventure by bicycle as you pedal along the riverbanks of the tranquil and unspoiled scenery that is the Shannon Blueway. On your return journey you will be surrounded by natural beauty and wildlife, all that makes this corner of Ireland one of its best kept secrets.
