Park
“80-acre activity park with walking trails, kids' play areas, fishing lakes and a canopy walkway great for children. Make a day of it. ”

Natural Feature
“The gentle rolling hills of the Slieve Bloom Mountains rise from the central plains of Ireland, forming a natural link between the counties of Laois and of Offaly. The area is picturesque, peaceful, gloriously multi-coloured and one of the least explored in Ireland. Dotted around the mountains are quaint little villages, and to visit one is like stepping back in time to an era when life moved at a slower pace. These are the places where people will take the time to talk to you, will listen to your stories and enjoy telling you theirs. ”

Historic Site
“Spectacular views of the surrounding countryside make the towering Rock of Dunamase a strategic place to build a fortress. Through the centuries, warriors have fought to control this site. The Rock of Dunamase is a popular historic attraction found overlooking the valley of the O’Moores, just outside Portlaoise, County Laois. It was the location of an early Christian settlement known as Dun Masc and later became an important Anglo Norman fortification.”

Entertainment
“STEPPING INTO MORRISSEY’S in Abbeyleix, Co. Laois, is like stepping into a time capsule with jars of sweets lining the shelves, currency pinned to the bar, and vintage cigarette advertisements populating the walls. It’s a reminder of the way pubs used to be and, arguably, how they should be.”

“Athy is a designated HERITAGE TOWN OF IRELAND and the Athy Heritage Centre-Museum focuses on the history of Athy and the surrounding area. Located in the former 18th century Market House (now Athy Town Hall), Athy Heritage Centre-Museum brings the history of Athy to life, from its Anglo Norman foundation, through the 1903 Gordon Bennett Race, to Athy Men and World War 1 and the story of local Polar explorer Ernest Shackleton. Athy Heritage Centre-Museum has the only permanent exhibition anywhere devoted to Shackleton. Its highlights include an original sledge and harness from one of his Antartic expeditions, a 15 foot model of Shackleton's ship 'Endurance' and an audio visual display featuring original film footage of his 1914-1916 expedition. The Heritage Centre hosts an annual Ernest Shackleton Autumn School over the October bank holiday weekend.”

Bar
“Owner Emma O’Brien reckons the session at Clancy’s “is unique as it’s the longest running traditional music session in Ireland.” In fact, 2016 saw Clancy’s celebrate its 50th year of trad sessions. The pub has even created a free traditional music festival called TradAthy, which is held during the May bank holiday weekend. But it’s the Thursday night gatherings of the traditional musicians in Clancy's back room that has given the pub its unique position in Irish music circles. Visitors come away really impressed at the quality of the music played there, according to Emma. Their session is open to everybody – singers and storytellers included. “Clancy’s is simply about the ceol agus craic (music and fun), meeting new people and playing some tunes,” according to Seamus Byrne, the longest member of Clancy’s session. Visitor Brian Faye says, “Clancy’s music session is like a family to me. I’m from the Isle of Wight and visit the session regularly. The atmosphere and wellbeing of the people make me feel at home.” The Athy pub has had its fair share of famous performers, too: Francie Conway from The Fureys, musician Mickey Joe Harte, singer Eleanor Shanley, Frankie Lane from the original Fleadh Cowboys, actor John Hurt and former Planxty members and trad superstars – Liam O’Flynn and Donal Lunny. Flooded with legendary singers and a session that’s still going strong, maybe it’s time to head to Clancy’s?”

Grocery or Supermarket
“A shop front that has not changed in one hundred and thirty four years. Where if you look closely you can still see the tie-up loops that the men would tie the reins to park the horse– donkey– and cart, so they could fill up on coal or turf while the wives did their groceries, and later of course, reward themselves with a pint of plain. Its many accolades include oldest pub in Athy, one of best family pubs in Ireland, and one of the Sunday Tribune's top one hundred pubs in Ireland. Most recently, Frank himself was vividly portrayed in Bill Barich's well-received " A Pint of Plain", which has been reviewed in most of the major international newspapers. But beyond all of this notoriety, "Frank's", as it most commonly known, has been a centre of Kildare history and sports through the four continuous generations of the O’Brien family that have occupied the premises.”
