When people think of the Irish countryside they often imagine gently rolling hills of green along with beautiful sunsets and charming pubs that serve traditional Irish food. Monaghan County in Ireland offers all of those things plus much more. When you stay in budget hotels in Monaghan you can enjoy the sights and sounds of this beautiful area such as a round of golf at the Monaghan Driving Range. Many golfers prefer the beautiful but challenging course at the Castleblayney Concra Wood Golf and Country Club. It sits on Lake Muckno and the lake is not just a beautiful attraction, it adds to the challenge of the game.
For those that are in the mood for some pampering, a day or two at the Victorian Spa within the Castle Leslie Estate is definitely worth looking into. The surroundings will make you think you’ve stepped back in time yet you’ll receive thoroughly modern and relaxing spa treatments. Another place to visit to get the full effect of the Irish countryside is the town of Clones and there are budget hotels in Monaghan that you can make your home base during your stay in County Monaghan. It has a charming town center and the friendly locals at The Ulster Canal Store can help tourists with information about the area as they enjoy the coffee shop. The store also provides bicycles to rent so that you can cruise around and enjoy the scenery.
