Monaghan is part of the border region of Ireland and most notable for it's lakes, undulating hills, quaint farmhouses and busy market towns. The county has wonderful rural scenery, and is an ideal destination for the angling, golfing and walking or cycling.

Monaghan was home to one of Ireland's most famous poets in Patrick Kavanagh. Kavanagh was from the village of Inniskeen and the area inspired much of his poetry as any student of Irish literature can attest. There is an interpretive centre dedicated to Patrick Kavanagh in the village of Inniskeen detailing his life and work.

The towns of Carrickmacross and Clones are also well worth a visit particularly for those seeking to find the best of traditional Irish crafts.

Monaghan county has many other attractions to enjoy such as the Monaghan County Museum, the Wildlife Education Centre, Castleblaney Leisure Park and Lough Muckno for fishing enthusiasts.

You are sure to be impressed at the wide range of things to do during a visit to County Monaghan.
