Templemore Park Fairy Trail, Templemore, Thurles, Co Tipperary

With the exceptional fine weather being enjoyed around Tipperary and forecast for the next week, the Hidden Tipperary Tourism Group are pleased to point out that on the first Wednesday of every month all Office of Public Works (OPW) managed Heritage Sites, here in Co Tipperary, will continue to offer Free Admission to all individuals wishing to visit their venues, for the complete duration of the 2014 holiday season.

These ‘First Wednesday of each month Free Admissions’ will include Cahir Castle, Swiss Cottage in Cahir, Rock of Cashel, Roscrea Heritage (Castle and Damer House) and the Blackmills.

Tickets will be allocated on a first come, first served basis, however visitors may experience delays at some of the busier sites and therefore are advised to arrive early to avoid disappointment.

Note: Opening times can also change at these venues at short notice, so those intending to visit are requested to check all websites for updates, prior to their intended visit.

Other permanently Free Admission sites for strollers, not managed by the OPW, but well worth visiting in Co Tipperary include Templemore Park Fairy Trail at Templemore, Thurles, Co Tipperary, plus the Clare Glens at Newport, Co.Tipperary and The Glen of Aherlow, at Aherlow, Co Tipperary.

Please remember that all young children, visiting these areas of great curiosity, should be fully supervised at all times, in the interests of safety.

    George. I have spend the last 5 days searching for accommodation in and around Thurles. We were planning to visit say September. Looking for B&B for 2 to 3 weeks. Much prefer Hotel accommodation more flexible for us “but shock” All I am getting back is most B&B in Thurles advertising only one room left costing $2,636.00 for two weeks. A Lodge advertising one room but likely sold out in 20 minutes. An other in Templemore will be sold out in 2 days at a cost of $2,144 for 14 days. Also one in Cashel will be sold out in 17hrs $1,823 for 14 days. ” George what is going on.” Do you know if the Anner Hotel is opened as yet. Or please could you recommend a suitable hotel for us. We are also looking for car hire for our length of stay. George your help will be much appreciated. Love the photo of the Bannon Twins.
