| 10 Places to Stay

The charming village of Lorrha is situated in the northern part of Tipperary, just a few miles from the place where the River Shannon flows into the shimmering waters of Lough Derg. This is a scenic, tranquil area of the county, where visitors can relax and enjoy exploring leafy lanes, handsome country estates and ancient buildings. Lorrha, despite its small size, has more than its share of important historic sights, being located at the site of an old monastic settlement. The ruins of St Ruadhan's Abbey date from 1000 AD, and the adjacent remains of two high crosses are even older, from 750 AD. There are two other atmospheric, ruined abbeys here - Augustinian and Dominican - as well as Lackeen Castle, established in the 12th Century and rebuilt in the 1500s. The famous Stowe Missal, an early Irish mass book, was found in the castle walls, and now resides in Dublin's Royal Irish Academy. Just outside Lorrha, the imposing Portumna Castle and its gardens are well worth visiting, as is the renovated Redwood Castle. Sports fans will find plenty to do in Lorrha's surrounding countryside. Lough Derg, Ireland's third- biggest lake, accommodates fishing, sailing, pleasure cruising, windsurfing, canoeing and kayaking.
