Cahir Castle: Designed to be a state-of-the-art defensive castle, this imposing 15th-century structure is one of Ireland’s best-preserved castles. Located on a rocky island in the River Suir, the castle’s attractions include an audio-visual presentation in several languages.

The Carrick-on -Suir / Templemichael area
Experience the great outdoors through the many walking and cycling trails.
Slievenamon ( Sliabh na mban, mountain of the women, 2,564 feet ). The view from its summit is one of great extent and much beauty, with a diversity of mountain and valley, river and wood but except for the view, it has not much to offer to the climber except a fine walk. It takes 2 hours to get to the top. Drive to Kilcash to find the trail. Don’t forget to stop in the local pub there for a drink after your walk.
The Kilmacoliver loop is one of the most scenic walks in County Kilkenny. Its only 10 minutes drive away. It starts in the village of Tullahought, where walkers can park beside the Watering Place, which is a wildlife pond fed by a freshwater spring. A mapboard displays the walking route and also shows the local wildlife in the pond and the area. http://www.everytrail.com/guide/trail-kilkenny-ireland-kilmacoliver-walk.
Ormond Castle, Carrick-on-Suir, is strategically positioned on the River Suir. In times past it commanded vital access North to the town of Clonmel and South to the port of Waterford. There has been a Castle at this location since early 14th century. The former owners and extremely powerful Anglo-Norman Butler family, who were created Earls of Carrick and Ormond, gave their name to the Castle

What a great stay...
We arrived to be greated by Alice,to collect the keys, what a lovely welome.. The house is stunning, what a location !, If you are after a tranquil, peaceful holiday, this is it..
The house was kept in a very clean order, there is a beautiful open fire which I lit on a couple of ocassions. there are 4 double bedrooms, 3 are unsuite. The house is finished with all mod cons, top class.. a beautiful house.. We found this within easy reach of visiting Clonmel and Killkenny on days out.
There is a lovely stream running along the bottom of the garden. Breda came to see us on our last day to make sure all was going well.
All in all, what a great time we had, we wished we could have stayed longer! We will be booking again next year... We cant wait ....

From our welcome to the moment we left we were treated with the utmost graciousness.
The house was everything and more than the pictures and the owners took us in and helped us with our touring. Upon arrival we were greeted with a homemade tart and got to meet Breda on the weekend. Very clean and an extremely lovely setting.
Breda are you coimg to visit?
