Tipperary Town, County Tipperary, Ireland

Tipperary Town the capital of the County of Tipperary. It was originally an Anglo-Norman settlement, it is now at the centre of a fertile plain known as the Golden Vale. This Golden Vale provides perfect lands for dairy farming making the area the envy of farmers throughout Ireland.

It was the scene of many violent incidents during the Plan of Campaign which was part of the second phase of the Land War in the 1880s. A statue of the Fenian leader of that time, Charles J. Kickham, can be seen on the main street. The Sean Treacy Swimming Pool, named after the War of Independence veteran, is also testament to the past history of this town.

South of Tipperary town are the Slievenamuck and Galtee Mountains which provide the perfect setting for hiking and sightseeing.

The county of Tipperary is an important equestrian area, with racecourses at Thurles, Clonmel and also Tipperary town. Regular race meetings take place at Tipperary Racecourse which is actually situated at Limerick Junction and was formerly known as 'The Junction'. There are also many racing stables and studs in the area. The world-famous Coolmore Stud is situated in Fethard with its satellite farms dotted around the Tipperary countryside. The great Istabraq is trained locally at Ballydoyle. Next to Kildare, one could suggest that the area is the bloodstock and racing centre of the country.

Tipperary is famous the world over for its song "it’s a long way to Tipperary" and we invite you to come and share time with us. We have a beautiful Town, great indoor and outdoor leisure facilities. It is an ideal base for walking the Galtees or smaller hills in nearby Cappawhite.

Tipperary has the best pubs in Ireland
