Among the amazing experiences in Ireland was my visit to the Armagh area in N.Ireland. Visit Armagh which consists of the Armagh, Banbridge and Craigavon Councils are really putting this area on the map. Ghilian Campbell was my brilliant host & tour guide and I can’t thank her enough. In addition, I also participated in a walking tour of Armagh itself and learned so much. Visit their site (link here) to see the array of great tours, food treats, bespoke experiences, history and culture on offer there.
