About the area
Discover County Armagh
From its highest point up on Slieve Gullion to its lower extremity at Lough Neagh, County Armagh’s scenery packs a punch. The county claims St Patrick himself as one of its sons – the Irish patron saint was Bishop of Armagh in the fifth century – and calls itself the 'Ecclesiastical Capital of Ireland'. You might also have heard it called 'Orchard County', and you’ll see why when you take your first sip of local cider.
