Situated in both Offaly and Laois, the picturesque Slieve Bloom  Mountains allow visitors
to experience and to explore the largest continuous area of upland blanket bog and forestry
in Ireland. Mountain streams and waterfalls run into deep wooded valleys and  friendly
villages nestle at the foothills. Trees,  shrubs, heather, bog mosses, bog cotton and  other
vegetation, as well as wild forest  animals and insects, surround the mountains  and offer a
great experience to the leisurely  stroller or energetic hiker. Choose from a  variety of walks;
eco trails, short and long  loops, forest paths and the Slieve Bloom Way.
