Explore the lush green heartlands of Ireland's natural rural beauty


Ireland’s Hidden Heartlands encompasses nine counties that hug the majestic River Shannon and Beara Breifne Way stretching from Leitrim to Lough Derg.  As a destination, the Heartlands have long been a much-loved secret among many local Irish people, who enjoy the natural beauty and expansive panoramic views of calm lake waters, inland waterways, rolling hills, vibrant green pastures and vast woodlands.

Ireland’s Hidden Heartlands is close to all the main cities of Ireland; yet far away from it all.  Dip your toe into not only the lakes of this region but also the culture, immense historical significance and, most importantly, the spectacular nature on offer.
