Once an 8th century "monastic place of learning"


Step out into the rolling hills of County Armagh and discover the City which St Patrick chose as the Centre for the Christian church in Ireland. Today two fine cathedrals, both called St Patricks decorate two of the hilltops in this ancient City. Enjoy a countryside shaped by the Ulster Plantation, small rural villages with historical ruins of castles, manor houses and stately homes. Proud of its Armagh Bramley apple the orchards play a big part in farming in the area today. South of the City of Armagh stand the rough rugged hills with landscape sheltering ancient burial cairns and standing stones. The people of rural Northern Ireland have a very warm, shy and charming welcome for all visitors to their homeland.
