Lanesboro is situated on the River Shannon at the northern end of Lough Ree. The town derives its name from the Lane family. George Lane took part in the Battle of Kinsale, 1601 and was rewarded with large amounts of land in the area. Lanesboro is linked by bridge to its sister village, Ballyleague in County Roscommon. The first bridge of wattles was replaced by a stone bridge in 1706, a new bridge was built in 1847 and was updated 1970. Activities in the area include fishing, boating and watersports, walking and pitch and putt. Places of interest include Saint Johns Church, Rathcline Castle and Ringdong Pet Farm as well as good shopping and nightly entertainment in hotels and bars during the summer season.
