Cahir, county Tipperary, for your holiday in Ireland


Are you planning a holiday or a vacation in Ireland? Perhaps you want to do some touring, some fishing or play some golf. If you are more energetic, maybe you would like to do some walking, some hill-walking or cycle around to get a feel for what the country is really like.

You might want to visit an ancient limestone cave and marvel at its natural formations. Possibly you would prefer to marvel at medieval castles and enormous ruined abbeys and wonder "what must this place have been like in its golden age?" or "how on earth did they build this place with the tools and technology they had then?"

Alternatively, you may just want to relax, take it easy, take in the wonderful scenery, take some photos, take some Guinness, take in a Hurling game, take some more Guinness and take home some great memories. Then why not consider the town of Cahir in County Tipperary, either as a base for what you want to do or as a place to visit as part of your tour.

Cahir offers all of the above, and more, so please take a look at our web-site and learn about some of the treasures and pleasures we can offer.

Tipperary is arguably Ireland's most scenic and varied inland county. It is also the largest inland county and shares its border with eight neighbours—more than any other county in Ireland. These are Waterford, Cork, Limerick, Clare, Galway, Offaly, Laois and Kilkenny.
A ring of mountains and hills follow the county border with wide flat valleys between them. Sometimes referred to as the ‘Tipperary Plain’ most of this area is better known as ‘The Golden Vale’—one of the most fertile areas in Europe. This is also the valley of the river Suir and its tributaries.
Tipperary’s largest mountains surround Cahir in the south of the county, making for spectacular scenery with impressive cloud formations, sunrises and sunsets. This, along with a wealth of antiquities, which include some of the largest monastic ruins in the country, makes the area a haven for sightseeing and photography.

Cahir is pronounced locally as ‘care’. Its earliest spelling ‘Caer’, which later changed to ‘Caher’, was derived from part of its original Irish name Cathair Dun Iascaigh. ‘Caher’ still persists on some maps and road signs.

The river Suir is pronounced 'Shure'. In Irish, the letter 's' followed by a vowel is pronounced as 'sh'.
