My husband and I are from the UK and have divided our time between UK and Ireland for 23 years now. I fell in love with this part of the world when we came for the first time touring through with our young and quite large family of 4 children (with no. 5 soon to follow!) who were treated so kindly by the Irish people. The welcome you receive here is tangible and the countryside is magical at any time of year.
We love this peaceful spot; the lake just a short walk away, is stunning at every season. Blackberry and Primrose cottages are in such a tranquil position with woodland just at the back which is south facing - sit quietly and wait for pheasant, hares and foxes to emerge ! With an entire area of 1.5 acres to ourselves, there is a feeling of being a part of nature. From inside the cottages you have lovely views all around and the open plan living area gives that feeling of spaciousness rarely found in urban dwellings.Come and see for yourself !.
Limerick city at just under 1 hours drive away is the historic home of King John's Castle which is a must see for anyone interested in the history of Ireland. There are regular guided tours, a video describing the history and a shop to purchase souvenirs and preserves. The added advantage of visiting the castle is that it is located conveniently to take a look at Limerick city itself and enjoy the variety of shops, restaurants and traditional pubs.
Another historical experience is the Bunratty folk Park just outside Limerick. The most complete medieval fortress in Ireland and where 19th century life is recreated. This is a great day out and one to include on your list.
Galway city is just over an hour away and it is a very lively and vibrant city, famous for its music which is evident throughout! There are some great shops with specialities including Connemara woollen goods and Celtic jewellery. Don't miss the regular artisan craft and food street market on Saturdays.
There are many other places of interest more locally such as Terryglass, Portumna and Dromineer all of which are on the lake shore and many water sports are available from these with Portumna offering a wider range of facilities such as golf. There are lots of festivals and events throughout the year in this region ranging from horse racing and the oyster festival at Galway to the annual Terryglass arts festival. Dromineer hosts numerous yacht and boating events.
There is a wealth of information available on the internet to get the most out of your holiday in Tipperary unless you simply want a peaceful retreat in the heart of the gorgeous countryside - the choice is yours!
