South Tipperary – Ireland’s ‘premier’ county – is a diverse and exciting holiday destination. You’ll discover ancient landmarks and medieval castles, world-famous fishing and challenging mountain walks, traditional music and gourmet food. Whether you’re staying a fortnight or passing through, plan your holiday to pack in as much of South Tipperary as possible!
The characterful towns of Cahir, Cashel and Clonmel are popular tourist stops with lots of places to see. Make time to view some of our unique historic sites, such as Cahir Castle, Ormonde Castle, and the Rock of Cashel. The county’s scenic countryside is an enormous attraction for tourists and locals alike – and there are plenty of mapped routes available for you to discover our forests and mountains. Fishing and cycling are popular pursuits, with many dedicated tour operators who can help you to find the best riverside spots – or the highest peaks!
When it comes to food, many of our restaurants serve up locally-caught or produced specialities. Whether you feel like international or local cuisine, you’ll find the perfect place to eat among our diverse restaurant scene. South Tipperary’s agricultural hinterland produces regional specialities like Cashel Blue – and much more, but you’ll have to visit a Farmer’s Market to discover them for yourself!
