The East Ireland region
The East is one of the most varied regions on the island of Ireland, stretching from cosmopolitan cities to mesmerizing rural scenery. The Urban playground of Dublin is less than an hour away, from Meath, whilst on our doorstep, lies landscapes of historic ruins, charming towns, rolling hills and river valleys.
The Counties Meath and Louth harbour the Boyne Valley, a cradle of fascination with passage tomb predating the Pyramids, historic battle site with live re-enactments and castles doubling as movie sets and concert venues
Ancient, majestic and rich in unspoiled scenic pastureland, Meath is the perfect place to escape the stresses and strains of modern life.
Situated in Ireland's Midlands and known as the Royal County, Meath was once the seat of the High Kings of Ireland, and is one of Ireland's most historic counties with an overwhelming array of mind-blowing sites. These include the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Newgrange and the Hill of Tara, which was the traditional seat of the High Kings.
If you can bear to drag yourself away from the abundance of spectacular sites, you'll find Meath to be a chilled-out, laid-back county with charming gardens, pastoral countryside, and a whole host of leisure activities from angling to golf.
Navan the capital of County Meath is a vibrant town with every amenity you could wish for the two main rivers in the county, the Boyne and the Blackwater join at Navan, which stretches to the Irish Sea, is the most historic waterway in Ireland. The rich legend of the Boyne with Fionn MacCumhall and the Salmon of Knowledge is still told today. The waterways are rich in aquatic life and the salmon and trout are recognised as among the finest in Ireland
Located just 40 minutes north of Dublin in the North East of Ireland and at the heart of Ireland's Boyne Valley, Navan, County Meath can boast an unrivalled and enviable location at the hub of four major motorways - the M1, M2, M3 and M4. We are rightfully proud of the fact that we are Ireland's most accessible county. County Meath is located only 30 minutes from Dublin International Airport while the ferry ports in Dublin, Dun Laoghaire and Belfast are also convenient. Regular train services from Dublin stop at Dunboyne while there are frequent bus services from Dublin to Navan.
