Visiting Bogs in Offaly

The bogs of Offaly formed over 10,000 years since the last Ice Age.  Clara Bog has a 1km walkway which gives a great introduction to these raised bogs of the midlands. The Clara Bog Visitor Centre is open during the summer. The harvesting of the bogs is resulting is a changing landscape in Offaly.  Bogs being harvested and vast expanses of dark brown peat can be seen travelling through the county.  Lough Boora Discovery Park is a great site to see how the vegetation recolonises once harvesting has finished, a wide and varied range of plants and birds are recorded here.  Harvesting of peat is often done below the water table resulting in new large lakes being formed after harvesting.

Birr Castle Garden & Science Centre: Allow yourself plenty of time to explore Birr Castle’s spectacular Gardens and fascinating Science Centre. The Parsons family invite you to explore one of the most extraordinary places in Ireland. Created over generations it is an environmental and scientific time capsule. All you budding knights and princesses will find yourself lost in a world of imagination in the epic Treehouse Adventure Area.  Tours are available of the Castle during the summer time.  www.birrcastle.com

River Shannon Start your riverside adventure in Banagher and cruise on one of the finest natural inland waterways in Europe as the River Shannon meanders through beautiful countryside.

Canals & Waterways - The River Shannon, Ireland’s longest river bounds West Offaly and a boat journey along
it is a gloriously peaceful way to test the pulse of the countryside. Anglers can choose from rivers, lakes and a canal. Little Brosna is a narrow slow river which winds its way from Roscrea to Birr and is popular among coarse fishermen. The Grand Canal is one of Ireland’s greatest engineering achievements. In the 18th and 19th century it was essential for industry; today it is just as important for leisure.  Nowadays privately owned boats move freely along its length, gliding serenely under bridges, through locks and past old buildings, bogland and rural landscapes. www.waterwaysireland.org

Angling - Situated in the heart of Ireland, renowned for its excellent course fishing with the majestic Shannon and its many tributaries, Brosna, Little Brosna, Suck and Grand Canal. www.visitoffaly.ie/angling

From 1556 until 1920 Offaly was called King’s County. The name was a tribute to King Philip II of Spain, who was husband to Queen Mary.  

Daingean was renamed Philipstown, also to honour King Philip and it was the county town until 1835 when Tullamore received the designation.

The landscape features gravel esker ridges left by the retreating icecap from the last Ice Age 10,000 years ago and many bogs which formed in the millennia since.  Many early Christian monastic sites can still be seen in the county which was once the meeting point of a number of provinces. The Grand Canal crosses from the east in Edenderry right through the county to join the Shannon at Shannon harbour. The Slieve Bloom Mountains, stretch along the south-eastern boundary with Laois, and provide many walking routes for visitors.
