Ireland's Ancient East

The eastern side of Ireland is steeped in history, and there's no better place to visit to experience country's built heritage dating back over 5,000 years. From neolithic momuments (which are older than the Egyptian Pyramids, dating from c3200bc) located in Newgrange in County Meath, to Medieval Castles, Monestaries, Country Estates and Viking settlements dotted around the landscape. "Ireland's Ancient East" is an initiative started by Fáilte Ireland to showcase the regions from Carlingford down to Cork and from Wicklow to the Shannon River, highlighting activities to suit the culturally curious and families looking for outdoor activites as well as sea & river activites.
