South East Ireland – Wexford, Waterford & Kilkenny holidays
Known as “The Sunny South East”, this ancient corner of Ireland comprises the five counties of Carlow, Kilkenny, Tipperary, Waterford and Wexford. This stunning area is an evocative patchwork of fertile valleys and plains.
Down through the centuries the Celts, Vikings, Anglo-Saxons and Normans have passed through these valleys, leaving behind a landscape rich in historical remains. Countless castles, abbeys, fortresses and ancient settlements remain to mark their passage. The five river systems – the Barrow, Blackwater, Nore, Slaney and Suir – criss-cross the South East, meandering under old stone bridges, around magical mountains, through picturesque villages and past neatly thatched cottages before finally entering the sea at scenic seaside towns.
All this coupled with a warm welcome and fantastic food make the South East a great place for an adventure.
