The county is characterised by a few rolling hills, with Tara Hill (272m) in the north, while the west of the county bordering County Carlow lines the Blackstairs Mountains, where the highest peak Mount Leinster reaches 793m (2,605ft). The south is generally flat, but once you round the south east corner of Ireland at Carnsore Point, where it meets the Atlantic Ocean, there is a noticeable difference in the sea as it generally appears bluer and is considerably deeper.
Also of notable interest are the Saltee Islands off the south coast, which are an important bird sanctuary.
