The Leitrim Way is a 27 km (17 mi) long-distance trail between Leitrim village, County Leitrim and Dowra, County Cavan. It joins the Cavan Way at Dowra, continuing the Beara-Breifne Way, a walking and cycling route between the Beara Peninsula, County Cork and Blacklion, County Cavan, following the line of Donal Cam O'Sullivan Beare’s march of 1602.

In 2019, the Leitrim Way was upgraded by local community groups, Leitrim County Council and the Beara Breifne Way committee and reopened to walkers.
