County Offaly

4.1

Faithful County

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. The region dates back to the Mesolithic Era and artifacts from as early as 6,800 BCE have been discovered here, including  Ireland's greatest collection of Bronze Age objects. Though Clonmacnoise is typically the most well-known destination for tourists in Offaly County, Birr boasts a castle and gardens. Whether you only want to go to County Offaly, or have a whole adventure planned, Inspirock has you covered with our user-friendly Ireland holiday builder tool.

Where to stay in County Offaly

While many visitors come to see the alluring monastic city of Clonmacnoise, travelers to County Offaly should consider spending time in some of its overlooked towns, including Tullamore and Birr, because Clonmacnoise does not offer a lot of places to stay. Spend the night at a traditional bed and breakfast in the county's biggest town, Tullamore, or head to a hotel or guesthouse in Birr for a chance to experience authentic Irish nightlife. As with many small towns in Ireland, staying in the center of town is your best bet.
