Leebeen Park Walking Trail
Leebeen Park is set in the heart of Aughnacliffe village Co Longford and was set up in 2003. It offers a variety of activities and is open to everyone. There is a playground and fairy garden to keep the little ones happy along with green gym outdoor exercise equipment and picnic benches, a lovely relaxing place for all.
The short looped walk of 1.5 kilometres runs alongside the playground with a boardwalk along and over the lake. The lake is home to beautiful wildlife including swans. Ample parking is available.

Points of Interest: Two impressive megalithic tombs or dolmens can be found in Aughnacliffe, one of which is the third biggest of its kind in Ireland. Dolmens were erected by the earliest inhabitants of Ireland who settled here between 4000 and 3000 B.C. and continued to inhabit the land up to 2000 B.C.
Visit the beautiful Pulliness Waterfall which is located nearby and take a leisurely stroll along the walking trail leading to it. If you're feeling peckish after your walk and would fancy some hearty fare whilst in Aughnacliffe, the Glenview Lounge has a tempting array of lunches and dinners to offer.
