Carrick-on-Suir, Co. Tipperary

This beautifully located medieval town is set in the ancient Golden Vale (Gleann an Oir), with the Comeragh Mountains to the south and the Walsh Mountains to the southeast making this unspoilt area a wonderful base for outdoor activities.

The river has always been central to the life and development of the town, formerly for trade and now mainly for pleasure. Although tidal, Carrick-on-Suir is navigable from any part of Ireland's inland waterways and a landing pontoon has recently been built, adding to the of the amenities of the town.

The Blarney Woollen Mills/Meadows & Byrne development, Dove Hill Design Centre (3 miles outside town on the N24/Clonmel road, now brings shopper to the area and refreshment is available there at The Passionate Cook (+353 (0)51 645603), a large and attractively designed restaurant offering quality informal food.
