Officially the Midlands region covers the counties of Laois, Longford, Offaly, and Westmeath; we’ve also included a couple of sights in the far eastern part of County Galway, due to their close proximity. Attractions in this region are widely spread out—hiring a car is the only practical way to see the Midlands’ best sights without spending excessive amounts of time on public transport (where there’s even any at all).
