Laois Discovery Tours
The Mountmellick Development Association in conjunction with local Tour Coordinator Fergal Conroy have come together to develop Laois Discovery Tours, we hope to give the people both Local and from afar the opportunity to sit back, relax and enjoy some of the breathtaking sights and hidden secrets our County has to offer.
On the tour you will be able to take in the likes of Emo Court and its unique gardens and the large neo-classical mansion designed in 1790 by James Gandon, The Rock of Dunamase famously known as being part of the Dowry of Aoife, the daughter of Diarmuid MacMurrough, King of Leinster, when she was given in marriage to Strongbow. The Round Tower of Timahoe also features along with The Vicarstown Canal and the Picturesque surroundings of The Slieve Bloom Mountains. The tour will also include a stop for lunch in a carefully considered location, and a visit to the Mountmellick Embriodery Museum. We will also have a snack and light refreshments for your enjoyment along the journey.
The tours including the above attractions and many more can be pre-booked through contacting the Mountmellick Development Association on (057)8624525 or our tour coordinator Fergal on (087)2520104.
