Places to see

As there are so many superb places to see in Cashel and County Tipperary, we have decided to give you a little bit of help in planning what to do during your stay with us!

Tipperary is Ireland’s largest inland country and, because of its size, is generally divided into South Tipperary in the  South East region, and North Tipperary in the  Shannon region. Vast, rich and varied, the county enjoys wonderful scenic opportunities with North Tipperary bounded by the stunning Lough Derg, and South Tipperary enjoying lush valleys and a landscape enriched by the Galtee Mountains and the mystical Slievenamon.

The county’s distinctive set of landmarks include the mighty Rock of Cashel, once the seat of the Kings of Munster and the magnificent 12th century Cahir Castle. Other  nearby highlights include the Swiss Cottage in Cahir, and Holy Cross Abbey, a restored Cistercian monastery set in a beautiful village outside of Thurles.

Tipperary has some other fascinating places to visit, such as Mitchelstown Cave, one of Europe’s most spectacular caves and the captivating Brú Ború Cultural Centre, commemorating Brian Ború with a ‘cultural village’ celebrating Irish music, song, dance and theatre.
