Ireland - The Midlands (Chapter)
This is the The Midlands chapter from Lonely Planet’s Ireland guidebook.
The Midlands is dominated by the River Shannon, which meanders through fields and forests, drawing boaters and fishers in shoals. Plush hotels and gourmet restaurants have sprung up along its banks, making it a wonderfully scenic and surprisingly cosmopolitan way to travel.
