The Infrastructure and Environment
The Sheenun House is located in Rossinver, County Leitrim. Leitrim is one of the least densely populated areas of Ireland. The wildlife and natural beauty in this county is unspoiled and breathtaking. In spite of numerous beautiful mountains and lakes tourism here is still very little. A new initiative focuses especially on the creation of ecotourism in the Leitrim/Sligo area: http://www.ecotourismireland.ie/
Leitrim is known to be one of the best counties for Irish art and music (check out http://www.studionorthwest.tv/ for more info on local culture). The Glens Centre in Manorhamilton (12 min by car: http://www.theglenscentre.com/) is frequently visited by the famous Irish musicians and known to be one of the best music venues in the West and Northwest of Ireland. The Dock in Carrick-on-Shannon is another venue that offers high quality theater, music and exhibitions: http://www.thedock.ie/
