One of my favourite historic Location to visit in Ireland is Ormonde Castle in County Tipperary.

Ormonde Castle description on Wikipedia.

The castle is located on the bank of the river Suir, on the edge of the town of Carrick on Suir, when it was first built the castle would have been set in a large private estate with much land surrounding it.

Today its location is in one of the parks that the town contains.

A summers day visit here is perfect as you can visit the Castle them make use of the park if you bring some lunch with you.

Ireland has such great history that is stored in locations like this, historic buildings are a part of Irish history and offer great attractions to visitors here.

If you are visiting then Ormonde Castle is a great location to put on your list.

Sitting on the bank of the river Suir ( Carrick-on-suir, county Tipperary ), Ormonde Castle calls out of Irish history and it’s fifteen hundreds.

From the misty past this castle still stands on the edge of a town whose history is completely dependant on this castle and the Ormonde family who built it. I will post with more details on the town and castle but for the moment I just wanted to give you a sense of this place.

These pictures where taken last December, about four day before Christmas and on a very foggy morning, the Castle stands on the banks of the river Suir and is often covered in mist during the winter months.
