Tipperary is a large region devoid of access to the sea and having primarily agricultural character. It is known for horse breeding, as well as for one of the most important Irish monuments, Cashel Rocks.
Since the early Middle Ages, the cathedral with a round tower and castle standing on a rock above the town of Cashel was a symbol of the power of Irish kings. Here was the seat of the rulers of Munster, here also in later centuries, under the rule of the English, vibrant Irish culture flourished. Today, monumental ruins are a tourist attraction on the one hand, and a place of pilgrimage on the other.
Cahir is another important city in the county, whose name means "stone fort". The city developed around the castle built in the 12th century, which has survived to this day. The town's second attraction is the Swiss Hut built at the beginning of the 19th century, designed for the Butler family by John Nash.
In Carrick-on-Suir, in turn, is the best preserved monument of the Elizabethan age in Ireland, Ormond Castle. You can admire the Long Hall decorated with carved columns and furnishings from the Tudor times.
A well-known place for enthusiasts of active leisure is the Aherlow Valley, limited by the wooded hills of Slievenamuck. It leads through hiking, biking and horse trails, which in the summer are full of nature lovers.
