Make it a Get-Away!

Why not bundle some of our National Heritage Week events into a “get away” package?

For example – a weekend break to incorporate a visit to a 14th century flour mill that’s still in operation and get stuck into some bread wars, enjoy the climb to the events at the Loughcrew Hills, go for a late evening walk reminiscing about Kells’ past & present, climb Ireland’s only inland lighthouse, the Spire of Lloyd, built in the 18th century, and take a bat walk in the beautiful village of Moynalty, visit the 7 Wonders of Fore – amongst other things!

Suggestion!: Let us help you PACKAGE all this fun with accommodation – contact us by emailing info@visitingkells.ie now!
