A look at South Tipperary

While it may be a long way to Tipperary, not so from Waterford Airport! Set around the Galtee Mountains, adorned by romantic and mysterious Slievenamon and a lush landscape, Tipperary has a wealth of history and heritage bound to please visitors together with a tradition of hurling and equestrian pursuits.

Tipperary is particularly rich in archaeological sites of interest including the Rock of Cashel in Cashel Heritage Town and Cahir Castle in picturesque Cahir Heritage Town. These traditional attractions are now complemented by the new Excel Centre in Tipperary Town which boasts an interpretative centre depicting Tipperary's past.

In Clonmel Town, the South Tipperary County Museum takes the visitor through the fascinating history of the county up to modern times. Walkers and outdoor enthusiasts are well serviced in this county of hills and vales.
