Co Monaghan is one of Ireland’s hidden gems, notable for its lakes, undulating hills, quaint farmhouses and busy market towns. The scenery and historical resources, of which we visit the more well known ones, make the county a popular spot for many people. On this new tour we combined it with a day in Dublin at one of the capital’s newest “must see” attractions.

This family owned hotel is set in a rural location and is one of the most modern hotels in Co Monaghan, providing an ideal base for us to explore from. It boasts 50 newly renovated bedrooms which all offer a TV, Wi-Fi, hairdryer and tea/coffee making facilities
