Ormonde Castle, Co. Tipperary

Ormonde Castle, Co. Tipperary

Whilst driving through the town of Carrick-on-Suir, a pretty little place in Tipperary, we discovered this 16th Century Manor House. Behind it is the original castle which dates back to the 14th Century. Thomas Butler, 10th Earl of Ormonde added the front section, the Manor House.

Unfortunately, it’s only open to the public in summer … end of September the gates close – just missed it by a few days ….

To the right of the gate is a road which leads to Carrick-on-Suir …

Camera lens through the bars ….!!

It was so quiet and peaceful with the smell of the recently mown lawns and the sound of the river close by, hidden behind bushes and trees.

  1. My first thoughts besides how beautiful is this old castle, I love old castles as there are many here in Germany as well…I thought…HOW HAUTED IS THAT PLACE!!!!

  2. It's a long way, to Tipperary! What a beautiful old castle and I'm quite sure it could tell a tale or two! What a pity you couldn't get inside!

  3. I wish I had the bucks to go on an European holiday to be able to see and take pictures of places like this. MORE… MORE… or actually… more please…
