The Dartry Mountains are a range in the north west of Ireland. They are situated mainly on the border of County Sligo and County Leitrim. The name is from the former tribe/kingdom name Dartraige.

The range is a large dissected limestone plateau with several named peaks such as Benbulben, Benwhiskin and Truskmore. Glaciation has carved the distinctive shapes of this mountain range.
