Tipperary : Michelin's recommendations
Tipperary is a pleasant country town on the River Ara in the Golden Vale, Ireland's prime dairying country. A feudal motte and a wall built by the Normans are still visible on the north-west side of the town. The ultramodern sports complex is rather striking, in this historic town trying to preserve its traditional shop fronts. It's a long way to Tipperary, the famous First World War marching song, has immortalised the town's name.
