In spite of, or perhaps in compliment to this strategic position on the Tourist trail of Ireland, Carrickmacross has neither lost any of it's village nor forsaken modern convenience in
doing so. It's a town that has something for everyone: Fishing on the surrounding lakes, Golfing on an eighteen hole championship course, local Equestrian facilities, the local small shops here mingle with larger
chains. The family owned pubs provide for warmth and entertainment, Discos dance you through the night, Specialty Restaurants bring a taste of the world to the pallet. Carrickmacross hangs on the threshold
between the new and the old in a very enjoyable balance.
