8 Things to Do in Clonmel That You Shouldn't Miss

December 7, 2017 Tambra Mccollister

Clonmel (Irish: Cluain Meala, meaning "honey meadow") is the county town and largest settlement of County Tipperary, Ireland. The town is noted in Irish history for its resistance to the Cromwellian army which sacked the towns of Drogheda and Wexford. With the exception of the townland of Suir Island, most of the borough is situated in the civil parish of "St Mary's" which is part of the ancient barony of Iffa and Offa East.

St. Patrick's Well

St Patrick's Well is located near Clonmel a short distance south of the main Clonmel, Cahir road. It is an old religious site situated in a sheltered glen where a large volume of spring water continuously wells up from underground. The church was built in the seventeenth century, but there are traces of an even older building. Inside the walls is the tomb of Nicholas White of Clonmel who died in 1622. At the centre of the small lake is a weathered Celtic Cross which dates from early Christian times in Ireland.

Didnt know what to expect a stunning peaceful spot hidden away amongst the verdant greenery. The bubbling reflecting pond is memorising, we had the place to ourselves, some people were arriving for a christening as we left.

Marfield Lake

Reviewed By Jimmy H

Marlfield lake and it's immediate environment is a beautiful and peaceful place to visit.Many parents take their children there to see and feed the many varieties of duck and other wildfowl which inhabit this location.The upkeep and maintainance of the area is done by a group of local volunteers who are to be commended for their efforts.The history of the area is outlined on information plaques and the many species of wildfowl are illustrated on a coloured information board which makes one's visit all the more interesting.The one downside to note is that because of it's isolated location it has been the subject of illegal dumping much to the annoyance of the local community.The local authority are monitoring this closely with a view to apprehending the offenders.

Reviewed By Billy C - Maidstone, United Kingdom

Good facilities, good laugh and good night out. Track and facilities have been renovated sincemy last visit, the track is located close to the town centre, and you can have a drink, food and a bet, without spending a fortune. Good "craic" for the experienced or the novice.

Richard Mulcahy Town Park

Reviewed By Con-Mara - Ireland

As we entered the town of Clonmel from the east, we were looking out for a safe place to give our dog a run. You could miss Richard Mulcahy Town Park, but it was the perfect place.
The park is laid out in large beds, with hundreds of trees. Though the trees are still quite young, it is a most attractive place, adjacent to the River Suir, and there were several other people there with their dogs. There is a colourful and fun playground for children also.
Dedicated to Richard Mulcahy, friends of Fine Gael will no doubt visit.

Old St. Mary's Church

Reviewed By Sailoil - Cashel, Ireland

Originally built in 1204 with later additions this was originally one of two monastic sites within the Clonmel Town Walls. The Augustinians held this friary in the North West corner of the old town and the Fransiscans still run the friary in the South East.
Old St Mary's is now a Church of Ireland chapel and graveyard. There are parts of the original town wall around the Graveyard. If you are interested in graves or gravestone rubbing this is a good destination for you.
For me the highlight is the highly unusual and very beautiful octagonal steeple tower.
It is a very serene place, lovely to wander round in a quiet moment. Beware of dog poop, not all owners are meticulous about picking up.
