Though often overlooked, Offaly County offers plenty for nature lovers, with a few metropolitan options mixed in. In addition to fishing, water sports, bird watching, and other outdoor fun, this area showcases historical castles, a popular monastic city, and archeological finds.
Kick off your visit on the 26th (Wed): let the kids burn off some steam at Birr Castle Gardens, steep yourself in history at The Irish Workhouse Centre, and then steep yourself in history at Clonmacnoise. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: see the interesting displays at Derryglad Folk and Heritage Museum, then explore the historical opulence of Athlone Castle Visitor Centre, then brush up on your knowledge of spirits at Old Kilbeggan Distillery, and finally sample the fine beverages at Tullamore Dew.
