Visitors to Ireland should make a bee-line for County Tipperary. The Premier County has been named one of the best holiday destinations for 2022.
According to a well-known international travel magazine, tourists visiting Ireland should “pump the breaks” in County Tipperary.
Earlier this month, Condé Nast featured the Premier County among its list of the best holiday destinations in the world for 2022.
The piece describes Tipperary as a “cosy, characterful county” and one of the best places in the world for foodies.
It is one of the best holiday destinations in the world for foodies. So, you can imagine there are plenty of tantalising experiences to enjoy in County Tipperary.
Embark on a Tipperary Food Tour. Here, you can enjoy a “cornucopia of goodies” from some of the members of the Tipperary Food Producers Network.
Enjoy high-quality artisan products like that of local cheese producers like Cashel Farmhouse Cheesemakers. Condé Nast describes this as having “an unfathomably creamy wedge of Cashel Blue”.
Restaurants across the county showcase the county through sourcing local and seasonal products to create a mouthwatering array of dishes.
Previously, visitors to the county almost exclusively headed to the world-renowned Rock of Cashel, “the most spectacular cluster of medieval buildings in Ireland”.
But, according to the travel magazine, Tipperary “has rarely been more than a half-day bullet point as part of a longer itinerary”.
However, many tourists are sure to add Tipperary to their 2022 bucket list. Now that Tipperary is one of the best holiday destinations in the world, we expect it will rise in the radar of many tourists.
Travellers from far and wide will descend upon the county to enjoy all there is on offer. “From local artisans and family-run woollen mills to craft distilleries and ancient cave formations.”
The piece mentions Ireland’s third-largest lake, situated on the western shores of the county. The magazine writes, “Walk it all off along the blustery shoreline of Lough Derg.”
Join “kayakers, paddleboarders, and cyclists whizzing alongside acres of cheerful wildflower meadows.”
Undoubtedly, the fantastic Lough Derg is one of the primary reasons Tipperary is named one of the best holiday destinations for 2022.
Looking ahead at the new year, Condé Nast recommends the latest addition to the Tipperary accommodation sector.
Expected to open in March 2022, Cashel Palace hotel is a luxury hideaway located by the picturesque Rock of Cashel.
Condé Nast describes the hotel as “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.”
This year, Condé Nast put together a list of locations that allow people to “reconnect to the best holiday destinations in a deeper, more authentic way”.
Tipperary joined 21 other locations featured as the best holiday destinations for 2022. Some of the other deserving destinations include Birmingham, Egypt, Beijing, Edinburgh, and Jersey.
Galway was the last Irish destination to be featured. Condé Nast named the capital of culture one of the best holiday destinations in the world in 2020.
