The Ancient Cathedral
City of Armagh is undoubtedly one of the most visually stunning and
historically intriguing locations on the island of Ireland. From pre-historic
landscapes to an unmatched Georgian architecture, modern day Armagh is built
against a rich backdrop of antiquity, clearly visible through its iconic
buildings and beautiful open spaces.

One of the best ways
to discover the delights of the city, and become immersed in its culture, past
and present, is through an official guided walking tour.

Under the guidance of an experienced
tour guide, you can walk through Armagh’s vibrant and varied history as you
hear stories and anecdotes about the area, learn about the city’s renowned
Georgian architecture and take a leisurely stroll along the distinct cobbled
streets as you uncover some of the city’s hidden gems along the way.

each Thursday – Sunday from Thursday 17 June – Sunday 12 Sept 2021.

The tours will take place Thursday –
