County Tipperary

Our cottages situated in this county take advantage of its landscape and many varying features.

Tipperary is Irelands largest inland county and lies at the heart of Irish farming with gentle hills and richly fertile river valleys. The town of Thurles is North Tipperary's largest town and makes an ideal base for visiting the impressive Cistercian Holy Cross Abbey.

See the beautifully restored chapels and cloister, the eye-catching fleur-de-lis symbols carved on the old stone pillars and the medieval fresco.

The Slieve Bloom Mountains, north-east of the town of Roscrea, offer an attractive unspoilt landscape of open vistas, wooded glens and mountain streams. The broad expanse of Lough Derg in the north-east of the county offers excellent boating and angling opportunities. Nenagh Castle in the town of Nenagh dates from the 13th century and was the seat of the first butler of Ireland. The town's interesting heritage centre is also well worth a visit.
