While you are in Clonmel, why not check out the wonderful Tipperary Museum of Hidden History, a state of the art visitor centre in the heart of the town. For further information on current exhibitions, visit hiddenhistory.ie
Clonmel is also home to South Tipperary Arts Centre presenting a range of visual arts exhibitions as well as music, performance, poetry readings and dance in a modernist former bus station. To see what is currently showing there, visit southtippartscentre.ie
Or why not make a return visit in July for our ‘sister festival’ Clonmel Junction Arts Festival which has been thrilling audiences since 2001 with a vibrant mix of theatre, music, and visual arts by local and international artists. For this year’s programme, see junctionfestival.com
If getting outdoors to stretch your legs is more your thing, Clonmel is a paradise for walkers and hikers. If you don’t want to stray too far from the town, why not visit St Patrick’s Well, a popular destination for pilgrims and tourists. Featuring one of Ireland’s largest holy wells, with a seventeenth-century church, altar tomb and Celtic style cross, St Patrick's well is a spiritual, serene and peaceful place with water so fresh that it's drinkable! Located a short walk away from the well is Marlfield Lake, another popular location that supports a large population of waterbirds including swans, mallard duck, coots, and herons. Or pay a visit to Carey’s Castle, the ruined remains of a nineteenth-century folly whose architectural styles represent a mix of the Irish round tower, Medieval Norman-style halls and Romanesque and Gothic-style arches.
If you’re feeling more energetic, the beautiful Suir Blueway is a 53km kayaking and canoe trail from Cahir to Carrick-on-Suir and a 21km walking and cycling trail from Clonmel to Carrick-on-Suir (or vice versa). Bikes are available to rent from Carrick, and the lovely people at Blue Way Bike Hire will offer a discount to any Finding a Voice audience member with a concert ticket.
