Heritage Main Newgrange, County Meath
Enjoy the ultimate Irish Heritage experience with our compliments in 2013.
The ancient history of Ireland is a colourful tapestry of stories. From UNESCO sites such as Skellig Michael in the South West and Newgrange in the Boyne Valley, to wonderful gardens, stately homes and national treasures. Follow in the footsteps of the Queen on her first visit to Ireland in 2011, or follow the history of families who have helped shape the course of commerce and history throughout Ireland and Britain.
We look forward to welcoming you ….
Emo House, County Laois
Gallarus Oratory, County Kerry
The Rock of Cashel, County Tipperary
Until recently, your English Heritage card would mean nothing if you tried to use it in Ireland. Not anymore.
Thanks to a recent initiative between English Heritage and Ireland’s Office of Public Works (OPW), your card is now a key into some of Ireland’s most beautiful and historically important heritage sites.
And we’re not just talking a handful. We’re talking hundreds of national buildings and monuments, gaols and monasteries, mansions and gardens.
Maybe some examples would whet your appetite?
How about a royal visit to the seat of Ireland’s high kings,
, a prehistoric stone fort just creeping over a cliff edge on Inis Mór or a The Rock of Cashel ensconced in its very own national park? Donegal castle
None of those take your fancy?
Perhaps you could ensconce yourself in effusive elegance at
Emo House, feel shivers up your back at riverside Clonmacnoise monastic site, or get lost in Robinsonian splendour at Altamont Gardens?
Who says there’s no good news anymore?
