Self Catering Holiday Homes in Tipperary

 

County Tipperary is Ireland’s largest county and is surrounded by counties Waterford, Cork, Limerick, Clare, Galway, Offaly, Laois and Kilkenny.

One of Ireland’s best kept secrets, this really is a hiking / cycling enthusiast’s paradise, nestling between Ireland’s highest inland mountain range – the Galtee Mountains and the thickly forested Slievenamuck Ridge. There are a variety of marked walk ways and cycle trails of varying difficulty, with stunning, panoramic views, many of which lead to the five picturesque corrie lakes high up in the Galtees. There are a number of prehistoric and early Christian sites throughout the glen and guided walks can be booked locally.

An alternative way to explore the mountains is on horseback, the Hillcrest Riding Centre in nearby Galbally offers riding lessons and treks for riders of all levels of ability. The tributaries of the River Suir flow through The Glen of Aherlow and offer excellent trout and perch fishing. 

Should you tire of exploring the surrounding countryside, you can relax in a game of golf at one of the local golf courses;

  • Tipperary Golf Club
  • Cahir Park Golf Club
  • Ballykisteen Ramada Golf & Country Club.
Alternatively spend a day at the races at the nearby Tipperary race course. This is one of Ireland's leading summer racetracks with top quality flat and national hunt racing combines with live music and excellent to give visitors a fantastic day out.

Less than 15 minutes' drive from Tipperary Town is the stunning Glen of Aherlow which is bounded by the rural villages of Bansha and Galbally, both of which have some lovely traditional pubs which give a real taste of friendly, rural Ireland. The area’s main town, Tipperary is a designated Heritage Town and has plenty of shops, restaurants and pubs which often have traditional music sessions.
