County Monaghan (Contae Mhuineacháin in Irish) is an area in the Republic of Ireland not far from the border of Northern Ireland. Monaghan is particularly renowned for the beauty of its mountains and lakes, ideal for walking and angling. There are plenty of places to visit that will put you as close as possible to the Irish wilderness.
On the city side, the county is mainly made up of small, fairly rural towns, where the Irish live in the Irish countryside. Monaghan is part of the largest city in the region, and you will appreciate its dynamism and the warmth of the Irish welcome! Also don’t miss the small villages in the county, just as friendly as Carrickmacross!
Go for it: County Monaghan has some real wonders!
