Discover The prairies and Centre lakes. Ireland

The centre of the island, between Connemara and Dublin, is a vast plain crossed by the River Shannon and covered with lakes. The groves, farmlands surrounded by rocks, are omnipresent. During the fishing season, the Shannon is actually the best place for fishing enthusiasts as it is well-stocked with fish. The region also offers a very pleasant environment for a quiet holiday, far from the hustle and bustle of Dublin and the west coast.
