County Tipperary Bed and Breakfast Accommodation
Ireland’s largest inland county, Tipperary is a major dairy farming area in one of the lushest parts of the mid-west region, with the River Shannon and Lough Derg running along its western edge.
The Silvermine Mountains and Devil’s Bit provide spectacular drives and walks while the River Suir and the Knockmealdown mountains, as well as the Galtees in the south-west corner, present a vivid landscape. Tipperary was divided into two council areas in 1898 – North Riding and South Riding - with administrative centres of Nenagh and Clonmel respectively, while Tipperary town is a market town of some significance, particularly in the milk and butter sectors.
History and Heritage
Immortalised by the British military marching song “It’s a long way to Tipperary”, the county has historic monuments in abundance and there are remnants of monastic settlements, abbeys and castles all around.
An insight into Irish traditional music, dance and song can be found at Cashel’s award-winning cultural and heritage centre Brú Ború.
