Drumshanbo, where the volunteer house is situated, is a rural town, very typical of the Irish country. The office, where the volunteers work, is in Ballinaglera. Leitrim offers a lot of opportunities for outdoors activities, recreation, entertainment and shopping.For more information visit the Leitrim tourism website.
