County Louth

Wee County

Though it's an easy day trip from Dublin, County Louth offers enough rich history, cultural life, and natural landscape to be explored during a longer holiday. Ireland's smallest county, dubbed the Wee County, hosts many religious, medieval, and natural sights. In the 5th and 6th centuries, this area was the center of ecclesiastic life in the country. Several of its well-known towns were built up by Norman invaders in the 12th century, including the region's most popular tourist destination. Use our Ireland itinerary builder app to arrange the hows, wheres, and whens of your trip to County Louth.
