Summer in Armagh

The story of Armagh is a tale of myths, turbulence and the strongholds of Ulster ruled by ancient Kings. Legend has it that Macha – the goddess of war and fertility gave the city its name. As centuries passed, today you can capture the essence of a city steeped in Christianity – the ecclesiastical capital of Ireland. With a beautiful Georgian inspired city centre full of museums, an Observatory and Planetarium, the Robinson Library and buildings of note surrounded by an impressive green space of the Mall, there are many opportunities to visit and explore.

Armagh has all you might want or need for a jam-packed summer of art, culture, food, fun and family friendly events can be found right on your doorstep in Armagh.
With a bumper calendar of  events over the coming months, an unrivalled tourism offering and world class attractions, Armagh and the surrounding region is set to be the place to be for locals, visitors and tourists alike this summer.
