    Escape into nature in Ireland's Hidden Heartlands

    It’s the satiny sheen of a quiet canal that cuts through rolling green fields. It’s the walking trails that weave through peaty bogland where ancient Celtic rituals once took place. It’s the flash of a kingfisher darting from a riverbank. Defined by its connection to both water and land and heralded for its pure beauty, Ireland’s Hidden Heartlands is a destination that basks in nature, with under-the-radar experiences that feel like you’re getting to the real heart of Ireland.

    Fowley Falls, County Leitrim

    Sublime surroundings

    Here, amidst a natural wonderland of rivers, canals and lakes, the world slows down. Calm your soul with a paddle along glass-blue rivers, lakes and canals; walk centuries-old canal paths once used for horses drawing barges; cosy up over candlelit dinners in waterside thatched pubs; and unearth thousands of years of history in heritage parks, historic abbeys and monasteries. In Ireland’s Hidden Heartlands, it pays to take it slow.
