Clara Bog Visitor Centre
Clara Bog Visitor Centre Review
The story of Clara Bog is showcased in this visitor center through touch-screen, text, and audio-visuals, giving unique insights into bog ecology and 10,000 years of natural and social history. As one of the best remaining examples of an intact raised bog in Western Europe, it is home to protected wildlife species, including the rare dark tussock moth, the keeled skimmer, a powder-blue dragonfly, and the grey partridge. Unique bog plants, such as Sphagnum mosses and the pink rosemary (Offaly's county flower), can be seen. The center is staffed seasonally by education guides (call in advance to check on opening hours). A five-minute walk from Clara railway station, Clara Bog is a wet environment (deep pools and quaking surface), so dress appropriately.
