The Midlands Travel Guide


The county seat of Offaly, Tullamore is a bustling market town that thrived during Ireland's Celtic Tiger boom that began in the mid-1990s and, like many parts of Ireland, has suffered in the economic downturn. The town's historical success was based on its location on the Grand Canal, one of Ireland's most important trading links during the 18th and 19th centuries.
