The Premier County has been listed as among the ‘best holiday destinations for 2022’ by the prestigious Conde Nast Traveller magazine.
Tipperary will be one of the top five locations in the world for ‘foodies’, according to the leading travel publication.
‘As Tipperary people, we all know the unique delights of our county. This is yet another example of how we are recognised and highly regarded across the globe. They may sing about it being a long way to Tipperary, but it seems as though it is not only our hearts that lie here. This endorsement from Conde Nast Traveller magazine is something that money cannot buy’ says Deputy Michael Lowry.
The blue and gold county has been chosen as one of the best for food lovers as part of the news outlets ’22 holiday destinations for 2022′.
The other regions chosen are Birmingham and Jersey, both in the UK, Serbia and Bend, Oregon in the United States.
Tipperary is the only Irish destination deemed a must-visit by the prestigious magazine.
According to the publication, there will be “a raft of enticing new experiences and openings“ in the county in 2022.
‘2022 should see guests pump the breaks, as 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’ Conde Nast Traveller adds.
It goes on to say “In spring, Relais & Chateaux will open its newest property in Cashel. An artful renovation of a grand 18th-century house once home to Ireland’s archbishops, Cashel Palace will offer 42 smart rooms and suites, a promising spa and a restaurant focusing on hyper-local, seasonal dishes“
“A cornucopia of goodies can also be gobbled up on Tipperary Food Tours, which take in honey farms – showcasing the importance of protecting the tiny but impactful Irish black bee – and trad cheesemakers where you can indulge in an unfathomably creamy wedge of Cashel Blue.
“Walk it all off along the blustery shoreline of Lough Derg, where you’ll be joined by kayakers, paddleboarders and cyclists whizzing alongside acres of cheerful wildflower meadows.“
