Armagh, Co. Armagh

Elegant Georgian buildings surround this city’s impressive oval tree lined mall, and turn any corner and you will be sure to see superb examples of Georgian terraced houses.  Ireland’s religious centre for 1,500 years and the seat of both Protestant and Catholic Archbishops, the city of Armagh predates Canterbury as a Christian religious site.
