Self Catering Offaly
Offaly is a slice of Old Ireland. Travel around the unspoiled countryside with its traditional hay meadows, and you will come across ancient humped bridges, handsome square towerhouses, elegant lock-keeper’s cottages and curious looking castles. Offaly is a great location to enjoy one of our Self Catering Offaly Breaks.
Even if the green and watery county of Offaly seems to slip your itinerary, it won’t be for long once you realise it’s the home of the ecclesiastical city of Clonmacnoise, one of Ireland’s most famous sights. But beyond this must-see attraction, Offaly has much to offer: its lowlands are dotted with monastic ruins, its towns are steeped in history and it has a burgeoning foodie culture.
To the east the rugged Slieve Bloom Mountains provide excellent walking, while fishing and water sports are popular on the River Shannon and the Grand Canal.
