Here in the county of Tipperary the River Suir meanders south through the picturesque and delightful rural village of
Holycross. The river is straddled by an ancient bridge, a crossing point between the north of the county and the south.
However it is the famous 830 year old now fully restored abbey that truly dominates the view from every side. It attracts pilgrims and tourists in their thousands as it has done for centuries.
Holycross has a long history as a location for visitors from Ireland and abroad. In addition to its history, heritage and services, the location of Holycross is special. It is located at the heart of County Tipperary. It is within 7 kilometres of Thurles, one of Ireland's best-serviced towns in terms of public transport and major road access; the M8 being less than 15 kilometres away.
As well as being close to a significant transport hub, it is within 15 kilometres of the Rock of Cashel, one of Ireland's premier tourist attractions. For more information visit http://www.hiddentipperary.com/villages-of-tipperary/holycross-village/
