  • Aspects of Tipperary

Cashel Palace

For much of the nineteenth century, a small number of wealthy people owned most of the land in Ireland. They often lived in castles or large manor houses.

Over the last 100 years, wealth has become more evenly distributed. Many of the old big houses have fallen out of use, and some were burned down during the Irish War of Independence. However, many remains of big houses can still be seen around Co. Tipperary, both in the countryside and the towns.

Although most of these castles and houses have fallen into ruin, some have been refurbished and are in use as grand dwellings or hotels. The Cashel Palace Hotel, pictured to the right, is now a luxury hotel.
