Monaghan : Michelin's recommendations
County town and main trading centre of the region, Monaghan is a pretty little place, well known for its splendid fishing spots. During the partition of Ireland, the county was detached from Ulster and included in the Republic, and its border was then situated on the River Blackwater. Most of the grey limestone buildings lining the narrow city streets date from the 18C, a time when the town specialised in linen weaving.
