County Tipperary has been named one of the top holiday destinations for 2022.

The Condé Nast Traveller’s list of top destinations is broken into different sections, with Tipperary being included in the “best for foodies” category.

The publication said: “Country Tipperary has long held an appeal for history buffs due to the atmospheric Rock of Cashel landmark – the most spectacular cluster of medieval buildings in Ireland – but it has rarely been more than a half-day bullet point as part of a longer itinerary.”

They added that visitors to Tipperary should slow down on their visits to the county as there is far more to enjoy than just the historical landmarks.

“There is much more to enjoy in this cosy, characterful county, from local artisans and family-run woollen mills, to craft distilleries and ancient cave formations.”

The newly renovated Cashel Palace hotel also gets a mention, with Condé Nast saying that the hotel will “offer 42 smart rooms and suites, a promising spa and a restaurant focusing on hyper-local, seasonal dishes.”

The Best Destinations Guide say they have “taken great care in selecting places to suit all travel appetites, taking our cue from those in the know.”
