    The slightly larger half of the former Irish county of Tipperary, South Tipperary borders Waterford in the south, and is completely landlocked, although the River Suir is one of several waterways providing excellent fishing opportunities, as it runs through Tipperary on its way to the sea.

    Things to do in South Tipperary
    Tipperary was once the largest of Ireland's inland counties, although it was split into two separate administrative areas back in 1898. It is an affluent farming area, due to its central 'Golden Vale', a flat limestone plain which is prime beef and dairy cattle country. This fine farmland is surrounded by mountains, including the beautiful Comeragh and Galty mountain ranges, as well as the picturesque valley of the Glen of Aherlow.  The beautiful countryside, fine river network and impressive mountain ranges attract visitors to the wide variety of walking, hiking and watery pursuits offered in the area throughout the year.

    Top Destinations

    ClonmelThe county town of South Tipperary, Clonmel is a great place to breeze through, with preserved backstreets, quayside mills and all manner of cafés and bars to entice passing visitors. It is also the home of Irish greyhound racing, with regular twice-weekly track events. Close by, the River Suir is known as a good location for the late run of salmon in early September.

    Fethard – On the road north from Clonmel to Cashel, Fethard is noted for its fine, if largely forgotten, mediaeval ruins; they include a ruined Templar's Castle, in addition to a number of old friaries and Iron Age raths (a type of ancient Irish enclosure). The village itself was systematically laid out as a Norman settlement, heavily fortified and surrounded by thick stone walls, as part of Edward I's 13th century strategic plans to fortify Irish market villages, and as much of the work and structure still survive, Fethard is known as the most complete mediaeval 'circuit' to be found anywhere in Ireland. Although now missing its roof, and with much of its stonework clad in ivy, the tower house of Knockelly Castle is still in remarkable condition for a 15th century castle.

    Cashel – Taking its name from the Rock of Cashel, a limestone outcrop which rises abruptly from an otherwise broad plain, and topped by an assortment of turrets, crenellations and mediaeval walls, the town of Cashel grew up around the spectacular elevated buildings. The stunning remains include the most complete Romanesque church in Ireland, an enormous mediaeval cathedral, a castle tower house, an 11th century round tower, a unique early high cross and an exquisite 15th century Hall of Vicars. At the foot of the hill lie two further mediaeval priories.

    Carrick-on-Suir – Situated at a tidal point on the river which runs through its centre, Carrick was first settled as an island, and remained so until minor river courses were diverted during the 18th century. For centuries, its 15th century seven-arched stone bridge was of great strategic importance, as the first crossing point inland from the estuary, and the bridge is still a prominent feature in the town. Carrick is also home to what is said to be Ireland's most beautiful Elizabethan mansion, adjacent to Ormond Castle. 

    CahirWith its fine 12th century Cahir Castle and an unusual ornamental Swiss Cottage, the town of Cahir was once at the intersection of two busy major road routes. The worst of the congestion is now a thing of the past, with the introduction of a bypass giving the town back some of the former tranquillity befitting of its heritage town status. The impressive Castle is built on a small island in the River Suir, and the good condition of much of its impressive keep, tower and defensive features make it one of the country's best preserved castles. Just outside the town, the thatched Regency Swiss 'cottage orné' was designed by the architect John Nash around 1810, and has recently been restored to some of its former glory.

    Killenaule – Located to the south of the Slieveardagh Hills, the historic little town of Killenaule dates from the Scandinavian invasions of the 9th century. Nearby, the Rathmoley double ring fort is one of the finest ancient monuments of its type, and it was here in 1925 that the Killenaule Viking Silver Hoard was discovered. More recently, in 1980, the Derrynaflan Hoard – containing some most precious liturgical items, including a fine 8th century chalice – was found close to a ruined church just four miles from the town. Items from both finds are now in the possession of the National Museum of Ireland. Today the town is the venue for the annual mid-Summer 'Hills of Killenaule Festival'.

    Bansha – Strategically positioned at the eastern gateway to the Glen of Aherlow, Bansha promotes itself at the centre of a vibrant social scene; visit the Agricultural Show or one of its numerous sporting clubs, take part in the game shooting, or try river fishing on the Suir, Aherlow or Ara.
