Offaly Self Catering Guide

Offaly lies near the centre of Ireland. In the south east of the county are the Heathery Slieve Bloom Mountains, among which there are pretty valleys to be explored.

There are numerous points of interest in the towns and countryside of Offaly, including one of the most important historic sites in Ireland - Clonmacnois. Offaly has an area of 1,997 sq km. The River Shannon flows along most of the western border, the Slieve Bloom Mountains rise in the southwest and the Bog of Allen covers the northeast. The width of the county is crossed by the Grand Canal.

Danish raths, or hill fortresses, and remains of ancient churches and monasteries are among the areas of interest.

Part of the kingdom of Offaly in ancient Ireland, the area was known as King's County from 1556 until the Irish Free State was established in 1922.
