How to Find Pink Apple Orchard ~ Luxury Yurt Glampsite
Pink Apple’s Glamping Site is based in the Glens of North Leitrim just at the tip of Lough Allen which is the central, largest lake seen on the map. Lough Allen is an area of outstanding natural beauty nestled in the core of County Leitrim. It is 11.2km long and 8km wide at its widest point. It is the uppermost and largest lake on the River Shannon. It lies between the Sliabh an Iarainn (Iron Mountains) and Arigna Mountains. We are situated at the top end of Lough Allen in the very heart of ‘Lovely Leitrim’, also central to many well known towns – Sligo, Carrick-On-Shannon and Enniskillen. Leitrim is a place of unique culture, full of hospitality and surrounded by beautiful unspoilt countryside. With the lake at our doorstep and all the abundance of landscape surrounding, there is always plenty to do from the unwinding tranquillity of our Pink Apple Orchard or to the exciting, majestic outdoor possibilities that await you!
