County Meath

Royal County

The birthplace of Irish civilization, County Meath served as a political center of Ireland for many centuries. The region's rich soil, the result of the last ice age, attracted the first settlers nearly 10,000 years ago. Thanks to an abundance of good land, plentiful water, and a strong farming tradition, the county remains one of Ireland's major agricultural regions, known for its production of potatoes, barley, milk, and grain. Much more than just fertile farmland, this area also boasts the country's largest Norman castle and one of the biggest megalithic complexes in the world, a sprawling archaeological site containing a network of 5,000-year-old burial mounds.
