- You might not think that this attraction would be particularly interesting but in fact, Peatland World is endlessly fascinating. Located just outside Newbridge, Co. Kildare on an old farm, Peatland World is in the heart of the Bog of Allen - a raised bog that covers parts of counties Kildare, Laois and Offaly. There are guided tours and an exhibition about the history of the bogs of Ireland - the country's main source of warmth and fuel for hundreds of years. The exhibition also focuses on the bog as a rich and vital - and now endangered - habitat for thousands of species of plant and animal. All in all, a fascinating glimpse of Ireland past and present.
