Holycross

The origin of this village and its name is apparent to all who visit it. Since the Cistercian Abbey was founded here in 1182, The Abbey has been home to a relic of the True Cross.
Over the centuries, pilgrims have travelled here to venerate the relic. The Abbey underwent painstaking restoration in the 1970's to bring it back to life as a working church.

Guided tours explaining the rich history and beautiful architectural features of the Abbey are available.
Holycross is also known as the home of Tipperary hurling legend John Doyle and the John Doyle Centre at the local GAA grounds is testament to his greatness.
You can also visit the unique wildlife habitat and education centre at nearby Cabragh Wetlands.
