The Offaly Way is a walking trail in County Offaly. It is 23 miles long beginning in Cadamstown and ending at Lemanaghan, on the R436 road between the towns of Clara and Ferbane. The walk is typically completed in two days.
The route is designated as a 'National Waymarked Trail' by the National Trails Office and is managed by the local council, Bord na Mona and the Offaly Integrated Development Company. The trail provides a link between the Slieve Bloom Way and the Grand Canal Way.
Starting at Cadamstown, the trail follows an old mass path along the banks of the Silver River to reach Kilcormac. It then crosses Boora Bog, an area noted for its Mesolithic archaeology. It then passes through the Turraun Nature Reserve before crossing the Grand Canal and following the River Brosna to Lemanaghan.
