Groupon’s Guide to County Meath
Named after the historic Kingdom of Meath, the county is the 2nd largest of Leinster’s 12 counties in size and houses a total of eighteen historical baronies.
County Meath is also colloquially known as “The Royal County” due to its history as the seat of the High King of Ireland. The archaeological complex of Brú na Bóinne refers to the area within the bend of the River Boyne which contains one of the world’s most important prehistoric landscapes, includes the burial sites of Newgrange, Knowth and Dowth, and was designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
