  • A true hidden gem of Tipperary, this is something experienced by few tourists. Originally on a lake, this has since been drained and the "island" can now be walked to. Legend had it that no woman could live on the island, while no man could ever die there. The Monastery dates from the 6th century, and makes Roscrea among the oldest inland towns in Ireland. Graffiti present on the trees (which are also among the oldest in the country) show a history of tourism dating back centuries.
  • Quiet and you need to know where is it exatly. The security guards the cows 😊
  • Off the beaten path.
