As it’s the season for all things romantic this month, we thought we’d share some of the most romantic locations in Tipperary for that once in a lifetime moment, or just a romantic get away for two. All of the locations have fabulous scenery and are great for photos and selfies (if you do decide to pop the question).

Terryglass

Terryglass is a beautiful hidden part of Ireland’s Lakelands. This pretty little village is located on the shores of Lough Derg, has nice walks and a great choice of food and accommodation. The village has a long and distinguished history with a monastery being founded there by St. Columba in 549 A.D. The famous Book of Leinster was produced at the monastery and can now be seen in Trinity College Dublin. It’s accessible by boat and has a harbour.

Ballina

Ballina-Killaloe is one of the most beautiful holiday locations in Ireland. The town is made up of charming narrow streets, flanked by old shops and houses that climb up the steep hillside and down over the 13th Century Cathedral. It links Tipperary to County Clare via the historic bridge. A foodie heaven, you will be spoilt for choice. It also can be reached by boat and has a moorings facility.

Garrykennedy

The village of Garrykennedy is located near to Nenagh town. Another beautiful location which is accessible by boat. Nenagh was originally a market town and its name in Irish (an tAonach) means “The Fair of Ormond” – a reference to the Ormond (East Munster) Fair. Nenagh is a large commercial town with many places to eat, shop and visitor attractions like Nenagh Castle, Heritage Centre and Courthouse.

Fethard Historic Town Walk

The town of Fethard boasts a large number of medieval ruins. A good portion of its original 14th-century town walls remain intact with its 2km heritage trail taking about an hour to complete. Inside the fortifications, highlights include the Holy Trinity Church, one of Ireland’s finest medieval parish churches, which is almost 800 years old.

Silvermines

The Silvermines is located near Dolla outside Nenagh. The village has a local pub, full of charm and character. There is also a village shop for groceries, artisan breads, newspapers, and general provisions. There is a walking trail with a picnic area alongside a stream. Other romantic features include preserved stone buildings, known as Cornish steam engine houses, which were used in the 1800’s to facilitate the mining of tin.

Lake Muskry Walk

Nestled in the Glen of Aherlow, you will find Lake Muskry. Legend has it that the lake was once the home of beautiful maidens who were transformed into birds every second year. One became the most beautiful in the world, to denote this she wore a gold necklace set with a sparkling jewel.

Dromineer

Dromineer has been the setting for many weddings over the years. Located on the shores of Lough Derg, it’s accessible by boat, has a playground and a peer for that romantic stroll. It is all overseen by the majestic ruins of an old castle.

Cahir Castle

Cahir Castle was skilfully designed by Conor O’Brien to be a state-of-the-art defensive castle. The castle retains its impressive keep, tower and much of its original defensive structure. It also features an excellent audio-visual show which informs visitors about its eventful history and inhabitants including the Butlers.
