Introducing County Laois

Little-visited Laois (pronounced leash) is often overlooked as drivers zoom past to the south and west. Away from the main roads, though, is this hidden corner of Ireland, with historic towns and the dramatic Slieve Bloom Mountains lying against a patchwork backdrop of rivers and walkways.

For all you need to know about Laois, check out www.laoistourism.ie and download the excellent Laois Heritage Trail booklet, which does a good job of tying together the county's history.
