Offaly Tourist attraction is the best in the Midlands

An Offaly tourist attraction has been named as the Tourist Attraction of the Year at the inaugural Midlands 103 Hospitality Awards.

Lough Boora Discovery Park was chosen by a panel of judges and picked up the award at Midlands Park Hotel in Portlaoise last night. Lough Boora has grown and developed greatly in recent years and is firmly on the map as a must visit destination for any tourist travelling to the area.

Among the other Offaly winners were The Tullamore Court Hotel which picked up the Hotel of the Year Award while the county also picked up two Judges’ Rising Stars Awards. Mary Hensey from the Tullamore Dew Heritage Centre picked one up in the Bar Sector while Sarah Alexander, The Central Hotel, Tullamore picked one up for the Hotel Sector.
