Tipperary is a treasure waiting to be explored. From its stunning mountains and rolling hills to the breathtaking Lough Derg – Ireland’s second largest lake – and the majestic River Suir, the sixth largest county on the island of Ireland is the proverbial playground for those who like to explore the outdoors. Part of Ireland’s Ancient East and a gateway to the Wild Atlantic Way, it is steeped in history, with remnants of medieval Ireland across the county, including the world-famous Rock of Cashel, sitting imperiously in the centre of the county and a constant motif for the storied history of Tipperary.
With a proud deference to the past, Tipperary still offers all the amenities of a county very much living in the present and bolting for the future. Modern facilities include quality parkland golf courses, angling, kayaking and other water based amenities, retail parks, cinemas, award winning hotels, and restaurants that celebrate the bounty of arguably Ireland’s richest agricultural heartland. There’s the charm of the county’s large market towns or its necklace of quaint, postcard villages. Tipperary also boasts some of the country’s leading artisan food producers, farmers markets and festivals all certain to appeal to the culturally curious visitor and local resident alike.
