South-East Region, Ireland

East and Southeast Ireland

The East of Ireland for our purposes stretches southward along the Irish Sea coast from Carlingford Lough to Kilmichael Point, taking in the maritime counties and parts of their neighbours.

As all our ByRoutes emanate from DUBLIN (dealt with in Special Pages covering Dublin City and the new administrative counties of Dunlaoghaire-Rathdown, South Dublin and Fingal), the region is inevitably covered by portions of eachfor specifics, see pages on Co. Wicklow,  Co. Kildare, Co. Meath and Co. Louth, plus Co. Carlow, Co. Kilkenny, Co. Laois and Co. Monaghan. There are also Special Pages on Carlow Town & Environs and the Castlecomer Plateau.

The Southeast, heavily marketed as the sunniest part of the island, encompasses all of Co. Wexford, most of Co. Carlow, Co. Kilkenny and Co. Waterford, and a small part of Co. Tipperary. There are also Special Pages on Waterford City & Environs, Kilkenny Ciy & Environs, Wexford Harbour, Town & Environs, Wexford’s Islands and the Tuskar Rock.

Pages updated in June 2019 are…

Dublin City history and walking routes
