Thurles / Cashel: Thurles is surrounded by the Silvermine Mountains to the North-west and the Slieveardagh Hill to the South-east. The town nestles in the heart of the beautiful Suir Valley. The area has many castles and monastic settlements which bear lasting evidence to the areas rich and colourful history.
Cashel which was once the seat of the King of Munster has one of Tipperary's most famous landmarks The Rock Of Cashel. The town offers a taste of Tipperary's gourmet food, crafts, art studios, cultural activities, warmth and hospitality.
Fishing In Tipperary: There are an extensive number of locations for fly-fishing in Co. Tipperary on the river Suir which passes just north of Cashel and on to Golden village and then the historical town of Cahir.
The River Suir rises in the Devils Bit Mountains and flows through the limestone country of South Tipperary and North Waterford.
Its physical characteristics provide an ideal habitat for salmon and trout. Grilse runs begin in late June and usually last through to the end of September, when the season ends. The river Suir has all the characteristics of a chalk stream and therefore produces trout in abundance ranging in size from 400g to 1kg. The large numbers present prosper because of the ideal nature of the habitat and the absence of any serious predators and lack of competition for food.
The Suir is renowned as a dry-fly fishery. Access to the river is excellent. Visitors may purchase permits from any of the associations and most of the private fisheries on the river.
Golf: There are a number of fine golf courses in the area which allow pay and play, Thurles (050424599), Clonmel (05224050), Dundrum (06271717) and Cahir Park (05241474). There are many other courses in the surrounding are as well.
