See what awaits you Ireland’s Ancient East

Immerse yourself in a journey of discovery of 5,000 years.

Get off the beaten track to see, hear, touch and feel the imprints of the millennia of settlers in this land. Ancient Man, Early Christians, Medieval Lords, Colonial Settlers and their descendants have all been seduced by these most lush, green and fertile lands.

Take your time to discover it all – the Stone Age art, the monasteries, the castles and fortresses. Drive leafy roads, explore meandering rivers or the mountains that once protected the original inhabitants.

Visit for more information.
