If you’re travelling as a couple or young family, you might appreciate the privacy and seclusion of a self-catering holiday home. There is a range of properties available in the county, ranging from quiet bungalows with mountain views to magnificent period homes.
If, on the other hand, you prefer holiday accommodation with all the bells and whistles, choose one of South Tipperary’s excellent hotels or B&Bs. From country houses to Georgian townhouses, there’s a place to stay for every taste. Locations overlooking or close to the mountains are very popular.
Where to Stay – Popular Choices
Clonmel is the main town in South Tipperary, with a population of 22,000. This historic town is prettily situated on the banks of the River Suir and overlooked by mountain ranges to the north and west. Come in July and enjoy theatre, dance, and music events staged as part of the Junction festival. Conveniently accessible from Waterford and Limerick by rail or road, Clonmel is a good starting point for exploring the county.
Cashel and Cahir are easy to reach on the M8 from Dublin or Cork airports. The towns are popular tourist destinations: Cahir is a designated heritage town at the foot of the Galtees, and it’s also a renowned spot for brown trout fishing. Cashel is the location of the famous Rock of Cashel, a landmark that rises majestically above the town on approach. Both towns are fairly small – with 3,000 residents each – and Cashel in particular is a great place for fine dining and culture.
