Tipperary is the unsung hero of Irish beauty and heritage. Nestled in the heart of the Irish countryside, it offers secluded walking trails a stone’s throw from world-famous historical monuments. Base yourself in this haven of glistening lakes and rolling countryside, and you’re centrally located for any exploration of Ireland.
The Glen of Aherlow is a secluded valley extending south of Tipperary town through 25 km of gently rolling countryside with beautiful views of the unspoilt landscape. Savour the setting during the Glen of Aherlow Walking Festival, a twice-yearly event held over the last weekend in January and the June bank holiday weekend.
The Rock of Cashel is quite simply one of the most recognisable and popular tourist attractions in Ireland. This spectacular group of medieval buildings perches on an outcrop of limestone overlooking the Golden Vale, with the most prominent structures including the 12th-century round tower, high cross and Romanesque chapel, 13th-century Gothic cathedral, 15th-century castle and the restored Hall of the Vicars.
Poised on a rocky island in the River Suir, Cahir Castle is the former stronghold of the influential Butler family. Its imposing keep, tower and much of its original defensive structure remain intact, making this one of Ireland's biggest and best preserved castles. Find out more with the excellent audio-visual show.
Inspired by nature and based on a design by the famous Regency architect John Nash, Swiss Cottage in Kilcommon, near Cahir, is a wonderful example of "cottage orné" (ornamental cottage). The cottage was built in the early 19th century by Richard Butler, 1st Earl of Glengall, and features an unusual thatched roof and external woodwork that evokes tree branches. The rustic theme is continued ìnside.
More impressive than Dunmore Cave in Kilkenny but less commercially developed, Mitchelstown Caves offer almost 3 km of passages. Dramatic chambers feature formations with names like the Tower of Babel, the House of Commons, and Eagle's Wing. The caves are situated near Burncourt, 16 km southwest of Cahir, with guided tours taking about half an hour.
Holy Cross Abbey is a restored Cistercian monastery on the River Suir near Thurles. It was named after the relic of the true cross, or Holy Rood, that Queen Isabella of Angoulême brought to Ireland around 1233. She granted the relic to the original Cistercian Monastery in Thurles, which was then rebuilt and renamed. It was restored as a place of worship in 1969.
Being an inland county has never dampened Tipperary’s enthusiasm for water sports. Lough Derg is one of Ireland’s largest lakes, and the River Shannon is close by, so you can choose from angling, canoeing, sailing, kayaking, swimming, water-skiing, cruising, and more.
Cloughtoberfest brings a blend of “Hot Club” gypsy jazz music and fine Irish craft beers to Cloughjordan on the October bank holiday weekend. It features concerts, music masterclasses, swing dance workshops, beer tastings and cookery, family events, and jam sessions everywhere.
Sli Eala (Swan Way) is a 10km walk between the historic lakeside village of Dromineer and the idyllic bridge and weir at Ballyartella. Winding through the heart of Tipperary Lakeside, the route opens up an area of natural beauty, steeped in history and lore. The walk follows the meandering Nenagh River (An Ghaothach), home to many mute swans - hence the name.
Nestled in the heart of the Golden Vale, Tipperary has a justifiable reputation for first-rate local food. Multiple award winners include Cashel Blue cheese from Fethard, Cooleeney cheese from Thurles, Cloughjordan Woodfired Bakery, Country Choice deli and cafe in Nenagh, Crowe Farm artisan bacon in Dundrum, and Lough Derg Chocolates from Nenagh.
