Comprising of Counties Carlow, Kilkenny, Tipperary, Waterford and Wexford

 

Welcome To The Sunny South East The South East consists of the five counties of Carlow, Kilkenny, Tipperary, Waterford and Wexford. The South East has things to do for everyone of all ages and tastes: historic monuments, colourful gardens; well-maintained and sign-posted walking and cycling paths; abundant fishing locations; numerous golf courses, equestrian centres and exciting festivals.

 

Now fully restored to its former glory, Kilkenny Castle has stood guard over the city of Kilkenny for over 900 years. Kilkenny is also known for atmospheric traditional pubs and fabulous restaurants, as well as for some of Ireland’s finest craft producers. County Kilkenny is also home to one of Ireland’s finest monastic settlements, Jerpoint Abbey and the magical Dunmore Cave, whose underground chambers were formed over millions of years.

 

You can also explore massive caverns at one of Europe’s most famous showcaves, Mitchelstown Cave in Tipperary. There’s a mystical aura around the Rock Of Cashel in Tipperary, a spectacular settlement of medieval buildings, including a 12th century round tower, 13th century Gothic cathedral and 15th century castle. Castle Cahir, imposingly situated on a rocky island on the river Suir in Tipperary, is one of Ireland’s largest and best preserved castles, with an impressive keep, tower and much of its defensive structure still intact.

 

Discover a thousand years of the history of Ireland’s oldest city at the Waterford Treasures Museum at the Granary, a treasure trail of rare and beautiful artefacts revealed by the latest in interactive technology. Follow the epic story of five generations of Kennedy’s at the Ancestral Home of JF. Kennedy in Wexford. You can still see the original farmyard of the President’s Great Grandfather. 

 

Waterford, famous the world over the beauty and craftsmanship of its master glass cutters at the newly opened House of Waterford Crystal Centre located in the city centre.  This includes a factory tour where you see glass being blown, cut and engraved. The tour finishes in the show room / retail area which houses the largest collection of Waterford Crystal in the World. 

 

 

Follow the footsteps of the famine period emigrants on the Dunbrody Famine Ship in Wexford, a full scale reconstruction of a 19th famine ship. Learn the heroic tale of the 1798 rebellion in Ireland at the interactive displays at the award-winning National 1798 Visitor Centre in Wexford. One of Ireland’s finest gardens, Altamont Gardens in Carlow, were first laid down 200 years ago and include many rare shrubs and trees and the dramatic Ice Age Glen, overlooking the Slaney river.
