Welcome to our new Carrick on Suir website, your guide to where to stay, shop and dine, what to do and what’s on in our town.

Carrick on Suir is an unspoilt and charming heritage town located in a spectacular setting in the heart of the Golden Vale. The town nestles on the banks of the River Suir, in the lush, fertile and tranquil valley between the iconic Mountain of Slievenamon and the Comeragh Mountains, which provide natural assets to the town of significant amenity & tourism potential.

The town's rich heritage & intriguing history offers an unrivalled experience for both tourists and the casual day tripper.

RTE Nationwide visited the town of Carrick on Suir in South Tipperary July 2017. On the show we find out about the history of the Town and its development over more than 800 years. We visit the recently refurbished Ormond Castle to see what Tudor treasures are housed there. We also talk to David Butler from the Butler Society to find out about his ancestors and their connection to South Tipperary and we learn about the Butler Trail a new tourism initiative in Ireland's Ancient East. We make a stop in Cooneys Pub where over 80 gold coins from the 17th century were discovered under the floorboards. Plus we pay a visit to the Tudor Artisan Hub to meet Linda Fahy who tells us about the activities there.
