Luxury holidays in County Tipperary

Emerging as the Emerald Isle’s foodie hot-spot, County Tipperary has shed its outdated reputation courtesy of its flocked farmers markets that burst with local flavours and gourmet goodies. Make sure you leave room for a cheese tasting at family-owned Cashel Farmhouse, or some homemade honey at Brookfield Farm. After refuelling, head to the shoreline of Lough Doug for a wind-swept walk along Tipperary’s bumper blueways and bottle-green landscapes.

When to go

Visit Tipperary from spring to summer when it’s at its most lush and emerald; or in August or September to catch the harvest before October’s rains start to pour.

Getting there

  • Planes

    Cork airport is about an hour’s drive away, Shannon 90 minutes and Dublin about two hours – all have good links throughout Europe and Shannon and Dublin further afield.
  • Trains

    Thurles train station is close to Tipperary’s main attractions, and it’s on the Dublin to Cork line so you can easily cross the country.
  • Automobiles

    A car will come in handy for hopping between towns and cruising through country expanses where no (or at least few) buses go.
