Tipperary Self Catering Guide
Tipperary is Ireland's largest inland county. In the south are the Galtee Mountains, the Knockmealdowns and the isolated height of Slievenamon.
The middle of the county is a broad plain, through which the River Suir flows; and from this plain the rich land of the Golden Vale extends westwards into County Limerick.
The county is renowned for its scenery and its excellent facilities for pastimes such as angling, golf, mountain climbing, caving and hunting.
Tipperary is Ireland's best recognised county, made popular in the World War One song 'Its a long long way to Tipperary'. In fact, many songs commemorate Tipperary, The Tipperary Lass, The Forty Shades of Green & Slievenamon, to name a few.
The county has a long and fabled history. You can visit the fabulous ruins at the Rock of Cashel, once a seat of the kings of Munster, the monastery at Holy Cross and the castle at Cahir.
Tipperary has beautiful lush mountain scenery. The most famous of these hills is known as the Devil's Bit, named for the bite taken out of it by the devil as he rode over Ireland, the hunk he spat out is now the Rock of Cashel.
