Laois Walking Festival

The Laois Walking Festival is an annual walking festival in County Laois. The guided walks are featuring woodland, mountain, bog, canal, and road trails in the Slieve Bloom Mountains.

Wander around the foothills and explore the Slieve Bloom Mountains! The hills of the mountains rise from the central plains of Ireland, forming a natural link between Counties Laois and Offaly. Their central location makes the Slieve Bloom area an ideal base for visitors wishing to make trips to other parts of Ireland. The mountains are not so high as to be dangerous, yet are not so low that they can still provide a challenge to every grade of walker and it’s only € 5 per walk!

The Slieve Bloom Mountains is only 30 minutes away by car from our midway hotel. During your stay with us, you can use all of our leisure facilities to help wind down after exploring the beautiful mountains.
