County Laois is located in the southern midlands of Ireland. A landlocked county, it forms part of the province of Leinster and the Midlands Region of the Republic of Ireland.

From 1556 until 1922 County Laois was known as Queen's County. Other, now superseded, spellings of the name are Laoighis (Irish) and Leix (English).

Public highways in the county – other than national roads (including motorways), which are the responsibility of Transport Infrastructure Ireland – are managed by Laois County Council.
