Local Attractions

Birr Castle and Gardens. This large castle is situated in the town of Birr in County Offaly, a 15 minute drive from Kinnitty Castle Hotel. It is the home of the 7th Earl of Rosse, and as such the residential areas of the castle are not open to the public, though the grounds and gardens of the demesne are publicly accessible. The castle grounds are also home to Ireland's Historic Science Centre, a museum of Ireland's historic scientists and their contributions to astronomy and botany. Discover the largest telescope in the world for over 70 years.

Clonmacnoise is an ancient monastic site near Shannonbridge, County Offaly, and a top visitor attraction in Ireland. A walk amongst the peaceful stone ruins of this famous place will conjure images of the saints and scholars of Ireland’s renowned Golden Age of Learning.

Tullamore D.E.W. For anyone interested in Irish whiskey, a tour of Tullamore D.E.W. Visitor Centre takes in every step of the artisan craft of whiskey making and tasting, illustrated with audiovisual media and the know-how of expert guides.

Lough Boora Parklands. Transformed from its previous incarnation as a commercial bog where peat was harvested to heat homes around the country, today Lough Boora Discovery Park is home to countless species of birds and wildlife, fish-filled lakes, and a permanent exhibition of huge outdoor sculptures. These sculptures give the park an other-worldly feel, created using the old industrial materials of the bog such as locomotives, rail-line and timber, all crafted into magnificent works of art. All routes start and end at the Visitor Centre, with a level walking landscape that can be enjoyed by all age groups. There are 50 km of paths in the Parklands ranging in length from a short stroll to the 15.8 km Turraun Route. The varying sights, sounds, and smells ensure a walk through Lough Boora always has something new, exciting, and interesting to offer. Bicycles for all ages are available to hire in Lough Boora and offer another way for you to enjoy the Mesolithic, Farmland, and Turraun Cycle Routes. Use a solo or tandem bike to explore 22 km of trails, winding through the park’s lakes, wetlands, and species grasslands.

Slieve Bloom Mountains. The wonderful thing about the Slieve Bloom Mountains, besides being the most unspoiled and uncongested in the country, is that you’ll find trails to suit every ability, from the experienced hiker to the casual stroller. Whether taking on the long-distance Slieve Bloom Way or opting for one of the shorter looped trails, visitors will be rewarded by spectacular views stretching across the midlands of Ireland. And on a clear cloud-free day, visitors can see the four highest points of each of Ireland’s four provinces.

River Shannon. If you like the idea of setting your own course and choosing when and where to stop off and explore, then a cruising trip along the Shannon could be just the ticket. Start this riverside adventure in Banagher and cruise on one of the finest natural inland waterways in Europe as the unspoiled River Shannon meanders through beautiful countryside, past historic towns, offering the best in Irish hospitality.
