Longford Town & Around/Ireland

Introducing Longford Town & Around

Longford’s county town is a solidly work-a-day place that offers easy access to its star visitor attraction, the Iron Age Corlea Trackway bog road.

Literati converge on the town each February for the Longford National Writers Group Festival, which attracts novelists, short-story and screen writers and poets from around the country.

County-wide information is available at Longford’s friendly tourist office (42577; www.longfordtourism.com; Market Sq; 9am-5.30pm Mon-Sat summer, winter hr vary).
