The Laois Monastic Trail
Published: 29th May 2014
Laois Heritage Forum is delighted to announce the production of a free audio-guide to the Monastic Trail of Laois, produced in conjunction with Laois Tourism and Laois Partnership. The guide has been produced by Abarta Audioguides, and can be download by clicking the link below, and following the onscreen instructions.
This audio guide will lead you around the beautiful landscape of County Laois to discover the remains of ancient churches and monasteries and to hear stories of saints and sinners at the dawn of Christianity in Ireland. On our tour you will discover wonderful historical sites like Aghaboe Abbey, Clonenagh, Coolbanagher, Timahoe with its famous round tower and Killeshin, one of the most beautiful Romanesque sites in Ireland.
The audio-guide comes with written directions to help you find your way around the lovely countryside of County Laois.
The audio-guide is designed to be played on smart-phones or mp3 players, or can be easily burned to a CD from the computer, for listening in the car or at home. If you have any problems with the download, please let me know and I will be happy to make you an audio CD.
This project was produced in conjunction with Laois County Council and was part funded by Laois Tourism and by Laois Partnership through the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development: Europe investing in Rural Areas
