Donaghmore Famine Workhouse Museum: A memorial museum in Portlaoise which tells the stories of people who lived and died in the workhouses before, during and after the Great Famine. The museum offers guided and self-guided tours to view the various exhibits which aim to explain the socio-economic conditions which led to the establishment of these workhouses.
Irish Fly Fishing And Game Shooting Museum: A museum exploring centuries of hunting and fishing in Ireland. Situated in a restored farmhouse just outside Portlaoise town the museum displays a vast variety of rods, reels, guns, tackle, tools and examples of Irish birds and fish. Some of the other exhibits include a fish and game shooting room, trophy room, clay pigeon room, boat house and hatching room.
Rock of Dunamase: Although little more than a few arches remain of the original structure as well as the castle being destroyed some 200 years after it was first built in the 12th century, the Rock of Dunamase remains a brilliant place to go to experience and explore the stunning views of the beautiful surrounding countryside from upon the ruins of this historic castle.
Emo Court and Gardens: Designed by architect James Gandon in 1790 for John Dawson, the first Earl of Portarlington. It is renowned for its neo-classical style. It was owned by the Jesuits during the start of the 20th century, Emo Court was then acquired and extensively restored by Mr Cholmeley Harrison in the 1960s. Mr Cholmeley Harrison gifted the estate to the state in 1994.
Slieve Bloom Mountains: These Mountains form a natural link between Laois and Offaly. The picturesque and peaceful setting offers some excellent walks and trails that can cater to all fitness levels. A little known fact is that along with the Massif Central in France, Slieve Bloom is the oldest mountain in Europe and was once the highest.
