Welcome to South East Ireland, a veritable treasure trove of dramatic vistas, opportunities to spot wildlife, and chances to indulge in local culture. From coastal destinations and bustling towns and cities, to deep, rich countryside, the region is ideal for romantic getaways.
South East Ireland comprises five counties, each renowned for a different set of attractions, glorious sights and wild landscapes. County Carlow, for example, is perfectly placed for exploring the rest of the country and all that it has to offer; with its mountains, hills, gorgeously kept gardens, ancient granite formations and wealth of activities, this corner of Ireland is particularly popular with couples eager to venture outdoors.
County Kilkenny, on the other hand, is the perfect destination for history enthusiasts, and those looking to connect with an Ireland of years gone by. The county city is blessed with medieval architecture and winding medieval paths, and dotted across the surrounding landscape are sites that any keen historian would find fascinating.
Venture across the region to County South Tipperary and discover a slower pace of life, punctuated with quaint and traditional villages, historic castles and other sites, and an undulating landscape that stretches for miles. This particular part of South East Ireland is a wonderful treat for couples hoping to hill walk or pony trek, with the landscape perfectly lending itself to outdoors activities.
Coastal County Waterford is a huge draw for tourists, tempting them to the beaches, and to take part in water sports. No visit could be undertaken without a trip to the home of Waterford Crystal, and couples may also wish to tour the ancient churches to be found across the county while they’re exploring. Also on your tour should be County Wexford, known for its temperate climate and numerous days of sunshine. Beautiful beaches, extensive forests and a living museum documenting some 9,000 years of history will be your reward.
