Cahir, Co. Tipperary

Cahir (Irish: Cathair Dún Iascaigh, meaning the stonefort of the fish) is a town in South Tipperary, Ireland. The town is best known for Cahir Castle, built on an island in the River Suir, near the centre of the town, and the Swiss cottage.

The main tourist attraction is the Island in River Suir, on which sits a medieval castle, Cahir Castle, once a stronghold of the Butler dynasty. As one of the best preserved castles in Ireland, this often attracts a large number of Irish and Foreign tourists to the region. Another major attraction is the Swiss Cottage along with numerous speciality heritage walks.

Cahir also has some interesting, if not beautiful landscape features. Nearby is the famous Rock of Cashel. The nearby Galtee Mountains form the largest inland range in Ireland, which though not very high (<1000m), are covered in a lush coniferous forest. The River Suir provides fishing for tourists.
