Ireland's East Coast is a fusion of history, culture and natural beauty, which offers a unique opportunity to explore the many stages of Ireland's rich heritage.
From the historical county of Meath with its famous Hill of Tara and megalithic Newgrange site, to the ecclesiastical magnificence of Clonmacnoise in County Offaly, the East Coast is a treasure trove of Irish heritage.
The area boasts many fine natural attractions including the impressive Slieve Bloom Mountains in County Laois, County Louth's spectacular Carlingford Lough and the peaceful hills, lakes and rivers of County Monaghan.
Wicklow, also known as the ‘Garden of Ireland', offers some of the best coastal views in the country overlooking the Irish Sea, while the Mount Usher Gardens and the Powerscourt House and Gardens in the county also come highly recommended.
Diversity is one of the key strengths of the East Coast, as visitors will find themselves bombarded with a variety of things to see and do. Equine adventures abound in the Curragh race track and the National Stud, County Kildare, which are renowned as the best stables in the world. Visitors can also sample racing action in the county at the Punchestown Festival.
The region also boasts many fine golf courses including the world-renowned K Club in Straffan, County Kildare – the only Irish golf club to have hosted the Ryder Cup.
The East Coast also offers a host of stunning sight-seeing opportunities including boating on the region's many inlets. For those of nautical sensibilities, visitors can cruise the Grand and Royal Canals, with the latter joining the Shannon at Cloondara, County Longford allowing for an uninterrupted journey from the east of the island to the west. Cruising the Shannon is a must – the waterways give generously of their hospitality and entertainment, and nature is at its best and most beautiful.
