By: Electric Bike Trails / Leave a Comment

Eileen and Seamus from Electric Bike Trails are offering an escape with an energising cycle on the tranquil Shannon Blueway in Co Leitrim, the ideal place to escape the hustle and bustle of life. Nestled between the majestic River Shannon and the Lough Allen Canal you can cycle along the water’s edge soaking up the peace and quiet. The trail is only 20 km round trip and connects the picturesque Leitrim Village with the village of Drumshanbo in the wake of Sliabh an Iarainn Mountain. To complete a perfect day immersed in nature enjoy a rejuvenating out door hot tub and sauna experience as well as spending time in the tranquil relaxation area at Drumhierny Woodland Hideaway.
Feel like a teenager again with the breeze in your hair, surrounded by bird song, wild flowers and shimmering waters. Get that walking on water feel as you cross over the iconic Acres Lake Floating Boardwalk. You will have earned a relaxing cuppa before your return to base either at the nearby, award winning, Jenny’s Tea Room or the Jackalope Café at The Shed Distillery in Drumshanbo Village.

For the cycle and wellness sanctuary experience enjoy a rejuvenating out door hot tub and sauna as well as spending time in the tranquil relaxation area at the end of your cycle. The wellness sanctuary is located at Drumhierney Woodland Hideaway, in a walled garden surrounded by original high walls and century old oak trees, beautifully landscaped to provide a secluded haven of tranquillity, for perfect relaxation. You can leave your bikes at Drumhierney Woodland Hideaway and we will collect them later so you can chill out after your cycle. It is only a short 10 min stroll back to Leitrim Village to collect your car.
