  • The Hawkins Vacation of Joy 2014 - Ireland part

    "What a super home for our family! We put 2,500 miles on a van in 16 days in Ireland. So, by the time we got to this great vacation home in Ennis, we we're ready for a quiet place to rest and enjoy some peace. We got that and more here! The hottub cottage IS our favorite place on the property. Very private and quiet place! Very impressed with the way the house is laid out and its' efficiency. We certainly felt comfortable and honored to use this house on our Vacation of Joy! Rent with confidence! The Hawkins Family Fairbanks, Alaska USA"

  • Great time on Dingle Peninsula

    "We stayed at this wonderful house for 7 nights and wished we had stayed longer. We did 3 big hikes in the area and had a wonderful time relaxing. Everything was great (the refrigerator was smaller then anticipated. My husband is on a strict diet of plant based food and it was hard to store all of our food). But, I would definitely recommend this place. Kevin was so easy to work with and even recommended places to stay in the Galway area after we left his place. Wonderful memories of our trip to Ireland and the best memories will always be the time we spend in the Dingle area."

  • Marvellous holiday!!

    "Alder Cottage is a spacious and luxurious holiday home in a beautiful and unspoilt environment. Host Mary gave us a warm welcome and provided us with tasteful organic meals. Our two children had a great time playing table tennis in the shed next to the cottage. There is plenty to do in the North West of Ireland. North Leitrim offers great mountain walks and it is an ideal base from where to make trips to the Donegal and Mayo Coasts and Marble Arch Caves. Our children especially liked the Ulster American Folk Park in Northern Ireland. The recently opened Cavan Burren Park is also a recommandation."

  • Amazing Bansha Castle

    "Our group of ten people spanned three generations and we used Bansha as a base for travels. It's an amazing place with seven beautifully equipped rooms - each with its own bathroom. It's has a great culinary kitchen and dining room. The outdoor heated patio was a great place to unwind at the end of the day with a drink. John & Teresa are excellent hosts and offer great recommendations. Bansha is a small town but we walked to the pub for a freshly poured Guiness on many nights! We used a Bansha Bus (Noel and Richard) so we didn't have to drive. It was great having a local guide so we could enjoy trips every days. Bansha Castle is ideally located. We made trips to Galway & the Cliffs of Mohr, Killarney & Ring of Kerry, Cork & Blarney Castle, Kinsale & Old Head Golf Course (amazing), Waterford & Wexford, and local sites like the Rock of Cashel. Amazing scenery in Ireland. We would love to come back and would definitely use Bansha Castle. It's a unique opportunity to have your own castle for a week!"

County Tipperary Travel Tips

Tipperary Vacation Rentals Are in the Heart of the Golden Vale

Tipperary is the largest inland county in Ireland and named after the River Ara. The main town is Nenagh in the North Riding, and Clonmel is the administrative center in the South Riding of the county. The "Golden Vale" is the fertile area along the River Suir which runs from the north to the south of the county. With mountains to the west and bordering Lough (Loch) Derg, the area has plenty of outdoor activities for visitors.

Travel Options for Reaching Your Tipperary Accommodation

The easiest way to reach your Tipperary accommodation is by flying into Shannon International Airport and picking up a local rental car. Tipperary is approximately 58 kilometers from Shannon Airport and 74 kilometers from Cork International Airport. Most U.S. airlines fly into Shannon Airport.

The nearest ferry port is at Rosslare in County Wexford, on the southeast coast of Ireland. Other ferry ports are further away at Dublin and Dun Loaghaire (pronounced Dun Lair).

What to Expect Weather-wise from Your Ireland Vacation Rentals

Influenced by the warm Gulf Stream and the prevailing southwesterly winds, the "Emerald Isle" has a temperate climate with plenty of rain showers. In the winter, mean temperatures are between 4 and 7 C (39 to 45 F) and summer highs are 14 to 16 C (57 to 61 F). May and June are the sunniest months to visit Tipperary.

Things to Do from Your Well-Located Tipperary Vacation Rentals

Tipperary enjoys some of Ireland's most spectacular scenery which is best explored on foot, horseback, bicycle or in a car. Lough Derg is northern Tipperary's pleasure lake where fishing, sailing, boating, windsurfing, paddling and other water activities can be enjoyed. The shoreline is dotted with award-winning villages which make great places to stop for an ice cream or meal in the friendly local pubs.

Those staying at Tipperary cottages in the summer may get the chance to attend the Gaelic Games which include hurling (similar to hockey), Gaelic football, Camogie (ladies' hurling) and handball. To the south of Nenagh is the Slieve Felim mountains and Keepers Hill. The Slieve Felim walking way offers 36 kilometers (23 miles) of walking trails with panoramic views across four counties. Horse racing and greyhound racing offer exciting days out at the tracks in Clonmel and Thurles, and the area has many local golf clubs which welcome visitors.

The nearby Glen of Aherlow has a wide range of things to do including walking and trekking in the Galtee Mountains and Bansha Woods. You can also experience local birds and wildlife in Aherlow Nature Park.

Fascinating and Historic Places to Visit from Ireland Vacation Rentals in Tipperary

Scenic towns and villages are part of Tipperary's charm and include the Ormond Castle at Carrick on Suir, Clonmel, Cahir, Tipperary and the ancient walled town of Fethard. The Rock of Cashel was the ancient seat of the kings of Munster. The 12th-century Cahir Castle and the Swiss Cottage are notable local landmarks. Roscrea is one of the oldest towns in Ireland with monastic and Norman buildings. Roscrea Castle and Damer House are well worth visiting for those staying in this area.

The county capital, Nenagh is a fine town built by the wealthy Butler family and has its own heritage center. Nearby, Thurles has "Lar na Pairce," a museum of the Gaelic Games.

South Tipperary has its own fascinating places to visit, such as Mitchelstown Cave and the cultural village of Brú Ború with its Irish music, dancing and theater. Heritage sites can be found at St. Peasaun's Church and Holy Well, St. Beirheart's Kyle and the Athassel Abbey.
