Groupon’s Guide to Portlaoise
Port Laoise, or Portlaoise, is situated in County Laois in the Irish Midlands. Its wonderful unspoilt countryside is a serene place, with the Slieve Bloom Mountains looming in the distance. Established as the Fort of Maryborough in 1556, under the reign of Queen Mary, it boasts many elements of its garrison past that are still evident throughout the town.
A recently restored old jail in the town centre now serves as a multi-purpose arts centre which regularly hosts a variety of cultural delights. Just outside Portlaoise lies the Rock of Dunamaise, an ancient Celtic fortification that is said to be mapped by Ptolemy as far back as in the 8th century.
