About this location
The Province of Leinster region
The South East which consists of the five counties of Carlow, Kilkenny, Tipperary, Waterford and Wexford. Fondly referred to by the 'Irish' as the 'Sunny South East', the region is famous for its vibrant towns, rural getaways and coastal villages and resorts.
The landscape of the South East comprises a mix of rolling hills, woodlands and farmlands, picturesque river valleys of the Blackwater, Barrow, Nore, Suir and Slaney, and a craggy coastline adorned by a necklace of quaint fishing villages and coastal resorts.
Early visitors, invaders, and raiders, merchants and traders helped create many structures, distinguishing marks and locations. Visitors from overseas are attracted by the richness and variety of heritage sites in the South East. Kilkenny Castle and the Rock of Cashel are among's most visited sites. Likewise the Irish National Heritage Park and the Dunbrody Heritage Ship in New Ross, Co Wexford draw a huge number of visitors.
Craft and culture enthusiasts flock to the Waterford Crystal Visitor Centre to marvel as they view master cutters create the world famous glassware, and those with more time on their hands based themselves in the region while enjoying all the region has to offer.
County Wexford boasts some of Ireland's longest and best beaches and many visit them in the summer months. The cultural life of the county is rich, including the annual New Ross piano festival (September), and the internationally renowned Wexford Opera Festival each October / November. During the 1798 rebellion many battles were fought in County Wexford including defeat at Vinegar Hill, outside Enniscorthy.
A large number of Norman castles and abbeys make Kilkenny one of Ireland's most historic counties. The visitor attractions include Kilkenny Castle, Jerpoint Abbey, Dunmore Cave, Saint Canices Cathedral, and Duiske Abbey and a rich array of arts and crafts.
Kilkenny City today is a popular destination for those interested in culture and the Arts. An impressive castle, Kilkenny Castle is a focal point for visitors to the city. Waterford City, Ireland's oldest city and the largest in the southeast, is an ideal place for shopping and nightlife.
The South East has plenty of opportunities for walking, hiking, cycling, fishing, horse-riding, golf (including the world famous Mount Juliet course near Thomastown), culinary adventures and seaside activities.
Inistioge is a beautiful and historic village on the river Nore in South Kilkenny. Its special character has made it one of the most visited places in the South East of Ireland for many decades.
Nestling in the Nore valley it offers some of the best scenery in the region particularly in the recently restored gardens of the Woodstock estate. There is lots to do and when you tire of river paths and woodland hikes you can choose to eat and drink in one of the excellent restaurants and pubs. See www.inistioge.ie
