County Monaghan is located north of Co. Cavan and beside the Northern Ireland counties of Fermanagh, Armagh and Tyrone. It's home to Lough Muckno a world-class centre for angling, Clones and Carrickmacross Lace which is an exquisite technique used in royal wedding dresses over many centuries.
Round towers, historic houses and the drumlin-dotted landscape which inspired the poems of Patrick Kavanagh are just a selection of the wonders you can enjoy and explore in Co. Monaghan.
The county is dotted with forest parks, perfect for walks through woodland, by waterfalls, rivers and lakes, such as Dartrey Forest and Rossmore Forest Park. Throughout the county there are wonderful craft studios for ceramics, art and lacemaking. This is the birthplace of Patrick Kavanagh, one of Ireland’s most lauded poets who was inspired by the beautiful, lonesome scenery of his native county.
Monaghan town, Carrickmacross, Castleblayney and Clones all have interesting heritage sites to visit, great shopping, antique shops and markets. The counties proximity to Northern Ireland, makes day trips to discover all the North of Ireland has to offer, a great touring option.
