Ireland's Ancient East: A Guide to its Historic Treasures
By: Neil Jackman (author)Paperback
Ireland's Ancient East is a new campaign that offers visitors a view of a different Ireland. This guidebook showcases 100 sites across the region, from Carlingford in County Louth, through the Boyne Valley of County Meath, into the heartlands of Tipperary and Kilkenny before ending up in Cork. Visit sites such as Clonmacnoise, Newgrange and the Rock of Cashel, as well as a large number of hidden gems like Athassel Priory in Tipperary, Gaulstown Dolmen in Waterford and Loughcrew Passage Tombs, in Meath. Take an immersive journey of discovery through over 5,000 years of Ireland's history, heritage, archaeology and folklore. Includes practical information about how to find the sites and what to expect from the visitor experience. Lavishly illustrated and with easy-to-follow maps, this is the first guide to this brand new venture.
