Sliabh an Iarainn Visitor Centre provides audio-visual displays about the Arigna and the Sliabh an Iarainn mountains' area, in Drumshanbo County Leitrim, with special emphasis on the railway, the canal, lakes, iron and coal mining.
The audio-visual show, lasting twelve minutes, takes visitors through the sights and scenes of lakes, mountains and towns, highlighting the beauty of this land of legend and wonder.
The Centre also has a display depicting miners at work and a reconstruction of a sweat house which was used in olden times as a cure for aches and pains. The Cavan and Leitrim railway era is recalled through the recreation of a typical waiting room, railway ticket and many fine pictures of the railway.
Sliabh an Iarainn, the beautiful rugged mountain of legend and song, lies behind Drumshanbo.
The refurbished Centre will open in spring 2012.
