2.6 million

Leinster is one of the four provinces of Ireland located in the east-central part of the island. Its capital city is Dublin, making it a popular destination for tourists. There are plenty of places to visit in Leinster both in terms of attractions and culture, ranging from archaeological sites to beautiful beaches.

One must-visit place is St Kevin's Way - a scenic walking trail at Glendalough National Park that passes through ancient monastic ruins and breathtaking landscapes. Another great spot is Powerscourt Estate, where visitors can explore castle ruins, gardens with striking views, and a waterfall.

Leinster also has an intriguing history with many interesting facts to uncover. For example, did you know that the Doomsday Book - an 11th century survey commissioned by William the Conqueror - listed precisely 875 settlements across Leinster? The document remains one of the earliest records detailing families' landholdings during Anglo-Norman rule in Ireland!
