Lough Boora Discovery Park

Lough Boora Discovery Park

Lough Boora Discovery Park is located in Ireland’s hidden heartlands just outside Kilcormac in County Offaly. It is just a 30 minute drive from Ardmore Country House. It wasonce a working bog. The turf harvested  was used to provide electricity and heat our homes. Today Lough Boora Parklands has been transformed into an environmental park teaming with wild life just waiting to be explored on foot or by bike. A magnificent outdoor Sculpture trail has been created using the old industrial materials of the bog such as locomotives, rail lines and timber. With access for all ages and abilities, this amenity can be explored for its outdoor activities, nature and biodiversity, sculptures and historical Mesolithic Site. Children will love to explore the fairy trail by foot or on bike.
