The Hill of Uisneach
The Hill of Uisneach in Co. Westmeath has played a part in just about every significant Irish event, be it political, cultural, religious, mythological and geographical. The centre of Ireland in many ways, the enigmatic hill is one of the most sacred and historic sanctuaries in the world.

Belvedere House & Gardens
Who would guess that behind the tranquil Victorian walled gardens and enchanting woodland trails of Belvedere House lies one of the most dramatic family histories in Ireland? This grand Palladian country house was built as a hunting lodge for Robert Rochfort in 1774, but it wasn’t quite the peaceful retreat you might imagine.
