Introducing County Offaly

Apart from the magnificent ecclesiastical city of Clonmacnoise, the green and watery county of Offaly doesn't feature on many tourists' itineraries, though it deserves far greater attention. Steeped in history with numerous castles to visit and the atmospheric town of Birr to enjoy, Offaly also offers vast swathes of bog recognised internationally for their plant and animal life, and prime fishing and water sports on the River Shannon and the Grand Canal.
