Located on the western part of County Tipperary, the District has two towns within its region – Tipperary and Cashel. West Tipperary is a central location to operate business from with key arterial routes linking all major cities and airports.

Cashel, located in the heart of County Tipperary is home to the internationally renowned Rock of Cashel – one
of the top visitor attractions in Ireland. Cashel has been included in the tentative list of sites for UNESCO World Heritage status. Once the home of the high kings of Munster, 21st century Cashel combines a passion and respect for its proud heritage with the amenities and experience of a modern Irish town that is within easy reach of all the larger centres of population in Ireland.

Tipperary is a heritage town with a long tradition in trading particularly in relation to its rich agricultural hinterland. The wonderful scenic Glen of Aherlow within 15 minutes drive of the town is nestled within the folds
of the Galtee mountains offering miles of walking and activity trails for the outdoor enthusiast or for a quiet walk after work.
