The North West Region takes in the five counties of Donegal, Sligo, Leitrim Cavan and Monaghan and is probably Ireland's best kept secret..
The magnificent scenery is utterly stunning; dominated, as it is, by the splendid Mountains of Cuilcagh, Arigna, Errigal and Ox. It is a unexplored, wooded region with beautiful inland waterways, picturesque lakes, burbling, meandering rivers, gently rolling hills and splendid waterfalls. This is surely not only an angler's paradise, but paradise for anyone who enjoys any kind of water sport from swimming to canoeing and surfing..
The three coastal counties of Sligo and Donegal and Leitrim between them have miles of uncrowded, sandy beaches. Donegal alone has 400 miles of coastline.
These five counties have numerous tourist attractions . Bundoran's Waterworld and the Exhibition Centre at Carrowmore near Sligo, which houses the larges cemetery of megalithic tombs in Ireland, are well worth a visit. Museums, castles, parklands and heritage centres are there to be seen.
Events and Festivals include the Ballyshannon Folk and Traditional Music in Donegal and the Yeats International Summer School held every year in Sligo.
