Ireland`s Roots Grew From These Counties

Some of the most important historic sites and monuments are located within County Meath and virtually every important aspect of Irish history from prehistoric times is associated with the county. Less than 30 miles north of Dublin along Ireland`s east coast, County Meath holds reminders of Ireland`s ancient past.

Known as the Garden of Ireland, County Wicklow boasts top-notch landscapes. The Wicklow Mountains are the largest upland area in Ireland and are a refuge for plant and animal life. Everything from breathtaking early-Christian sites to elegant country homes of wealthy 18th-century nobility can be found here.

The River Nore flows through beautiful County Kilkenny, home to the legendary Rock of Cashel. Kilkenny City, the smallest city in Ireland, is chock-full of history, featuring a `Medieval Mile` right in the city center which showcases some of the town`s top attractions, such as Kilkenny Castle and St Canice`s Cathedral.

The 111-mile-long Ring of Kerry (Iveragh Peninsula) is a part of the mystical and unspoiled region of Ireland that has attracted visitors for hundreds of years. It provides an amazing insight into the ancient heritage of Ireland and a landscape carved out of rock by the last Ice Age 10,000 years ago.

The Heritage Towns of Ireland are towns and villages that offer unique character provided by a combination of architectural styles, often spanning many centuries, which gives them a special feeling for the past.

Ireland`s countryside is dotted with castles (at one time over 30,000 of them!) that range from romantic castles and towers that are in ruins to stately chieftain castles and Irish castle hotels. They are all filled with character and history.

Ireland and Beyond

The island of Ireland is thought to have been inhabited from around 6000 BCE by people of a mid-Stone Age culture. About 4,000 years later, tribes from Southern Europe arrived and established a high Neolithic culture. Many sites from ancient times are still in existence and are open to visitors, such as the collection of art at the Rock of Cashel; the Hill of Tara, the seat of power of Ireland`s kings; and the megalith Newgrange which is even older than Stonehenge in England.
