Welcome to Tipperary

Welcome to Tipperary, one of the most famous regions in the country. The county is a great base to travel throughout the Shannon and midland regions. No trip to the county would be complete without paying a visit to the Rock of Cashel, seat of the ancient kings of Munster and one of the finest examples of medieval architecture in Europe. 

The county is littered with historical monuments and castles, and has more walled towns than any other county, such as at Carrick-on-Suir and Fethard. There are plenty of looped walks and heritage trails to suit those wanting to explore these unspoilt landscapes, and for those interested in water sports and angling there are plenty of both to be found along the River Suir and at the Lough Derg Lakelands.

Things to Do

  • Rock of Cashel: One of the most iconic, photographed and visited sites in Ireland, the Rock of Cashel is a remarkable collection of medieval religious buildings set on a limestone outcrop in the town of Cashel. Once the home to the ancient kings of Munster, the spectacular ruins are in very good condition and include a 12th century round tower, high cross, 13th century Gothic cathedral, and a 15th century castle. There is also a beautiful Romanesque chapel, Cormac’s Chapel, dating from the 12th century. Inside are a number of unique frescoes which are being painstakingly restored by conservators.

  • Glen of Aherlow: The Glen of Aherlow is a lush valley where the River Aherlow runs between the Galtee Mountains and the wooded hill of Slievenamuck. Historically this glen was an important pass for travellers going between Limerick and Tipperary. Today visitors still travel through here, but this time it is to enjoy the beautiful scenery and take part in the many activities on offer. Walking, cycling, and fishing are all available here, as well as golfing and horse-riding.

  • Holy Cross Abbey: Holycross Abbey is one of the eccliastical jewels of Ireland, and a visit here will show you why. This Cistercian monastery takes its name from a relic of the True Cross or Holy Rood, a fragment of which was brought to Ireland by Queen Isabella of Angoulême in the 13th century. Left in ruins after the Dissolution of the Monasteries by Henry VIII, the abbey was lovingly restored in the 1970s and was reopened as a peaceful enclosure for contemplation and discovery.

  • Cahir Castle: This medieval castle of the powerful Butler family dominates the area around the town of Cahir in the south of the county. Built in the 13th century, the stronghold retains its impressive keep, tower and much of its original defensive structure. The castle was besieged twice during the Irish Confederate Wars and was left in ruin by the 18th century, but today much of it has been restored and guided tours and audio-visual displays are available on site. 

  • Swiss Cottage: This delightful "cottage orné" is an almost unique piece of Regency architecture. Built in the early 19th century by Richard Butler, 1st Earl of Glengall, this ornamental cottage appears to be at one with nature. The cottage contains a distinctive thatched roof and the external woodwork resembles branched trees. The theme of nature continues inside with unusual features like a graceful spiral staircase and some elegantly decorated rooms. Neglected for many years, the cottage is now beautifully restored and guided tours are available.

  • Mitchelstown Caves: Situated midway between Cahir and Mitchelstown, this vast network of underground passages and caverns is a hidden gem in south Tipperary. Discovered in 1833 by quarrymen, this vast network of passages and caverns. In order to protect the caves natural state guided tours were quickly organised. Tours are provided by local friendly guides who show you the wonders of the caves including three massive caverns and one of Europe’s finest columns, the Tower of Babel, which stands some 9m in height. 

  • Fethard: Not far from Clonmel is the medieval walled town of Fethard. The town was founded by the Normans and is remarkable for having been heavily fortified and completely surrounded by town walls, which rise to a height of 7.6 metres and can still be seen today. Most of the circuit survives, making Fethard the most complete medieval circuit in Ireland. Other highlights include the town hall the Holy Trinity Church, one of Ireland’s finest parish churches and, at 800 years old, one of its oldest. The town is also internationally known in the thoroughbred horse racing industry as the home of Coolmore Stud. 

  • Roscrea Castle: Located in the town of Roscrea in north Tipperary, this historical site features the perfect combination of medieval and Georgian architecture. The beautiful 13th century castle consists of a gate tower, curtain walls and two corner towers. The castle rooms are furnished and houses exhibitions on the history of the castle and the area. Alongside the castle is Damer House, a striking example of pre-Palladian architecture. Within the complex there is also a restored mill displaying the original St. Cronan's high cross and pillar stone.
