The West Offaly Railway Bog Tour is a funny way to explore the largest production-fields of peat, a wast area close to Clonmacnoice and a visitor-train will take you out in the bog and will have several stops, where you can get out and see some remains of historic places, where the peat was won in former centuries and of course you will also see the modern machineries of nowadays.

That train is operated in April, May and September:
Monday to Friday 10am to 5pm (tours run on the hour)
May, June, July and August :
7 days a week 10am to 5pm tours run on the hour

Address: Shannonbridge, in County Offaly
Directions: Located about midway between Galway and Dublin, just south of the main road N6 between those two cities. Just south of the town called Athlone.
