Learn the stories of a place and you'll come to understand the soul of its people. From ancient high kings to modern day poets, saints and scholars to ramblers and fishermen, Ireland's Ancient East pulsates with legendary tales. With the maps as your guide and the itineraries as your inspiration, you're about to prepare for a real life journey through this mystical place.

That’s how all the best stories start around here. And this part of Ireland – as you’ll soon discover – is full of stories. On windswept hills, in small green fields, or simply at a bend in the road – stories are never far away. They’re written on the land. And echo in the voices of the locals.

Fadó Fadó. One thousand years before the pyramids, people here built the tallest building in the world, and aligned it with the sun’s rays.

Fifteen hundred years ago, Europe’s pilgrims crossed mountains, heath and bog to Ireland’s first University. The legendary High Kings made human sacrifices to the gods of nature, then knelt before the cross, and fought the Vikings.
