The town is not short of charm and character with Georgian houses, picturesque bridges and canal walks, it has a colourful and interesting history providing a relaxed and quiet environment to suit everyone. An example of the appeal of Monasterevin is the Canal Festival which attracts visitors from near and far with plenty of entertainment for children and families to enjoy.
The eighteenth century saw the rise of Monasterevin as the â€œVenice of Irelandâ€ with extensive town planning and the construction of numerous bridges.
