Motorhome Hire Offaly

County Offaly rests in the Irish province of Leinster and contains several great attractions and many pretty sights off the beaten path for campervan and motorhome travellers. The county is famed for its link to former President Obama’s ancestors! President Barack Obama is indeed Irish, and there’s even a song by the Hardy Drew and the Nancy Boys titled “There’s No One as Irish as Barack O’Bama!”

The Irish name for the county is Contae Uíbh Fhailí which translates to The Children of Failge, referencing the local king Failge Berraide who reigned around 510. The monastery of Clonmacnoise may be a detour; however, it’s a beautiful location and never flooded with tourists. Birr Castle contains the fittingly baptised “Leviathan” telescope, created in the 1840s by the astronomy-obsessed third Earl of Rosse. Pop over to the Irish Game and Country Fair for a taste of the Irish countryman and woman. The Lough Boora Parklands is open throughout the year and provides a unique sculpture park set in reclaimed boglands. There’s a range of free activities at Lough Boora Discovery Park and admittance is free. Offaly hosts numerous live Irish folk sessions primarily held at the nearest pub. Most folk music sessions begin whenever a few musicians have assembled!


Enjoy Ireland with your campervan or motorhome trip to Offaly!
