Introducing County Tipperary

Landlocked Tipperary boasts the sort of fertile soil that farmers dream of. There's still an upper-crust gloss to traditions here, with fox hunts in full legal cry during the winter season. The central area of the county is low-lying, but rolling hills spill over from adjoining counties.

Walking and cycling opportunities abound, especially in the Glen of Aherlow near Tipperary town. But the real crowd-pleasers are the iconic Rock of Cashel and Cahir Castle. In between, you'll find bucolic charm along pretty much any country road you choose.
