Lanesborough is located on the banks of the River Shannon at the northern end of Lough Ree. Approximately 10 miles southwest of Longford town, Lanesborough is divided in two by the River Shannon and marks the northern entrance to Lough Ree. The portion of the town on the western side of the River lies in County Roscommon and retains the old Irish name for the settlement of Ballyleague (‘Beal Atha Liag’, meaning Ford of the Stone).
