Tullamore is the thriving and bustling county town of Offaly. Home to 14,607 people, the town has historically been an important commercial centre for the surrounding region.
Tullamore benefits greatly from its central location. It is almost equidistant to three of Ireland’s largest cities (each within 60 – 90 mins drive), making it an attractive location for residents and visitors alike.
The town continues to be an important regional centre for administration and business. An increasing cluster of medical-tech and biopharma companies are locating themselves in Tullamore in proximity to the Midlands Regional Hospital, which is the major hospital for the region. The town is shifting away from employment in peat production to green technology, which is opening-up many new investment opportunities.
Tullamore also has a rich cultural heritage, with attractions like the new Tullamore Dew Distillery where you can learn about the famous whiskey before a taste test. The town is also home to the grand, gothic architecture of Charleville Castle where you can wander through the grounds to see the impressive King Oak, one of the oldest oak trees in Ireland.
The town is served by 8 primary schools, and 3 secondary schools, as well as being in close proximity to 3rd level at TUS Athlone. Transports connections are strong with a direct connection by train on the Dublin/Galway rail line.
