The Story of Portarlington Audio Guide

The free to download Story of Portarlington Audio Guide will lead you through the streets of this charming Laois town.  It will help you to discover the origins of Portarlington as you hear stories about how the town became known as the ‘Paris of the Midlands’.  Portarlington has many hidden gems and stories to discover, from Jonathan Swift being inspired to write his classic Gulliver’s Travels while staying in the town, to the story of how Portarlington gained a reputation as a centre of education and learning.

Portarlington was established in the 1600s and grew to accommodate French Huguenot refugees; over two hundred years later it again provided a safe sanctuary for more refugees that were fleeing the horror of World War I.  Throughout the history of this fascinating town there have been stories off economic prosperity and decline. This audio guide was produced in conjunction with Laois County Council, Laois Partnership and Laois Tourism. This project was part funded by Laois Partnership through the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development.
