About the neighbourhood
Srahan is suited in a hillside location in the beautiful County of Laois. A great base for exploring the real charms of Ireland. With amazing views, great opportunities for walks, and amenities such as traditional pubs and angling close by, what's not to like. Set within the Slieve Bloom Mountains which are among the most unspoilt and least explored areas in Ireland. Discover the real Ireland. The gentle rolling hills of the Slieve Bloom Mountains rise from the central plains of Ireland, forming a natural link between Counties Laois and Offaly. They are at the cross-roads of Ireland half-way between Galway and Dublin, Belfast and Cork, and Donegal and Rosslare. The area is made up of forests, blanket bog of a type which is unique to Ireland
