County Longford, home of the Legend ‘The Wooing of Étain’, is a place of magic, myth and mystery. Steeped in ancient Irish mythology, Longford has many impressive archaeological sites as well as a wealth of historical, literary and musical tradition.  Ancestral home of the Farrell Clan, Longford is a tranquil and mainly low-lying county, renowned for its angling, boating and outdoor sporting activities. It is ideally located in the heart of the ‘Lakelands and Inland Waterways’ region, and within easy reach of many stunning and historic tourist attractions. The recently restored St Mels Cathedral – ‘The Longford Phoenix’ acts as the focal point of Longford town, while ‘The Royal Canal Way’ which meanders for over 146km from Dublin to Longford,  provides direct access to the town center for both walkers and cyclists. Longfords accessibility to many of Irelands main towns and cities make it a prime location as a holiday base. The true beauty of the county lies in its rural charm, the hospitality of its people and the breathtaking views of its quiet countryside of farmland, lakes, bogs and the occasional low hill.
