About County Tipperary
Vast, rich and varied, enjoy a plethora of activities in Ireland’s largest inland county
Tipperary is Ireland’s largest inland country and, because of its size, is generally divided into South Tipperary in the south east region, and North Tipperary in the Shannon region.
Vast, rich and varied, the county enjoys wonderful scenic opportunities with North Tipperary bounded by the stunning Lough Derg, and South Tipperary enjoying lush valleys and a landscape enriched by the Galtee Mountains and the mystical Slievenamon.
With a bewildering array of historical attractions including the Rock of Cashel, Roscrea Castle and Holycross Abbey, and a delightful array of picturesque villages and charming towns including Dromineer, Garrykennedy, Cahir and Terryglass, Tipperary is a county that you’ll adore exploring.
