The county was established in the 13th century after the Normans invaded Ireland and there is much evidence of the invaders scattered across the county including the famous Rock of Cashel, Roscrea Castle and Cahir Castle.
The fertile countryside is decorated with rolling hills, the Silvermine and Galtee Mountains as well as lakes and rivers. Lough Derg is is situated in the north of the county and is one of the largest lakes in Ireland. The two biggest towns in the county are Nenagh and Clonmel, but there are also many charming villages to be found here, including Fethard, which is home to the famous multifunctional McCarthy's - a bar, restaurant and undertaker all in one.
Tipperary offers a view of Ireland that you don't get from any other county. It has a rural theme and when someone makes this county their home, they seldom leave.
