We’ll meet at the Rock of Cashel car park, and then we’ll take a hired bus (included in the price) to the starting point. This walk is entirely alongside the River Suir with a treasure trove of sights of castles and abbeys along the way.

First is Suir Castle, then the amazing Athassel Abbey which walkers can explore. Then, the trail goes through Golden village passing Golden Castle. The next castle to pass is Ballynahinch Castle then onto the magnificent Hore Abbey which can again be explored; the trail finishes at the Rock of Cashel.

A great way to explore Ireland’s biodiversity and wildlife!

The Tipperary Heritage Way goes through a variety of grasslands which are filled with an abundance of wildlife by the river including dragonflies, butterflies, marsh marigold, water lilies, and native trees including hazel, beech, ash and willow. An array of birds can also be seen including herons, kingfishers, swans and wild ducks to name but a few.
