Armagh is an ancient compact city soaked in myths, legends, history and heritage. It is located in the heart of Ulster and well known for being the ecclesiastical capital of the island of Ireland. One of the best ways to discover more about the story of this city and its citizens from the pre-Christian era up to modern times is to book a guided walking tour which will take you through the city centre at a leisurely pace, stopping off at various locations on a route of approx 1 km. This bijou of a city centre is a conservation area with many beautiful buildings and an impressive selection of Public Art. Your guide will entertain you with facts and anecdotes as they escort you towards the Hill of Armagh, where you will be treated to a feast for the eyes with the panoramic vistas from Ard Mhacha, height of Macha.
