    We had a bad start to our days cycling. My wife and two children 8 and 10 decided to eat in the small cafe before heading out on our cycle. I have never seen so many wasps in one place. This was an an...  more »

    It is a beautiful park but too much walking. It was great for the kids but not much to do for the adults.  more »

    Discovered this place by accident. It's amazing and beautiful. Took my 6 year old there to cycle his bike (9.3 km). I recoiled slightly at the cost of lunch, but it was really nice and it was substantial so worth the money I suppose. You can bring a picnic of course but, as in was staying in a hotel nearby, that wasn't easy to arrange. Anyway, it's a great place to bring the family.

    Great place to go especially with kids. You can rent bikes and bring your own picnic with plenty of places to sit. Great for the kids to explore the old trains that used to be user here. Great day out. Brilliant fairy trail for the kids too.

    We had a lovely day here. Family friendly. Spotlessly clean. Staff very helpful and friendly. Good pricing for bike hire. Will definitely return

    Visited yesterday on what was a beautiful summer like day. Spent about 2 hours there and yet only got to see the tiniest fraction of what is there so I'm sure I will be back many more times. It's well worth the drive from Kildare.

    I love this place so much. Wild yet peaceful. So much beauty. It's hard to think of superlatives to describe this place.

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.
