Ireland’s Ancient East

Wander through 5,000 years of history.

GREAT FOR

When you explore Ireland’s Ancient East, you wander through 5,000 years of history.

Peel back the layers of history and discover a story that unfolds in the vast green landscapes that seduced a millennia of settlers from Ancient Man to Early-Christians and Medieval Lords to Colonial Settlers. On your journey immerse yourself in history as you are greeted by prehistoric wonders, monastic marvels, magnificent castles and grand estates at every turn.

This is 5,000 years of history. This is Ireland’s Ancient East.

IRELAND’S ANCIENT EAST: THE AREAS

Encompassing 17 counties and 5,000 years of history, Ireland’s Ancient East features three unique areas.

In the Land of 5,000 Dawns, you’ll find the whimsical woodland trails of Belvedere House and the exceptional passage tomb of Newgrange, built way back in 3200 BC.

The Historic Heartlands is much more than cozy National Heritage Towns and sleepy mirrored lakes. This is where saints converted kings at the Rock of Cashel, Kilkenny Castle changed hands for a song and Iron Age victims were surrendered to Lough Boora Bog.

Tales continue on the Celtic Coast, where Vikings looted holy treasures from the monastic city of Glendalough and the light of Europe’s oldest lighthouse sweeps across Ireland’s story-strewn maritime history.
