It's a lot of set up for future interesting things and a couple of things that could be good if they didn't happen entirely off-page, but in terms of actual "hey there's cool and major stuff happening right now;"

Spoiler: show
Renly dies.
Stannis loses the battle of the Blackwater.


Pretty much everything else is build up. Build up that gets paid off well a book or two down the line, but not really very interesting at the time. Imo it was the least interesting of the series to read (personal preference), and seemed slow by the standards of the series. Also it's pretty Stark-heavy and Ned is the only Stark I found even vaguely interesting in his own right (although Arya improves).
