Cahir to Cashel Greenway

Scheme Introduction

Tipperary County Council in partnership with Transport Infrastructure Ireland (TII) propose to develop a greenway route between the towns of Cahir and Cashel. The greenway project is intended to create a sustainable transport link between the significant tourist attractions of Cahir Castle and the Rock of Cashel. 

The proposed Cahir to Cashel Greenway project also has the potential to connect to the Suir Blueway which connects Cahir to the Carrick On Suir Greenway.

Cashel is the most significant tourism destination of the county and the Rock of Cashel is the most visited attraction. This attraction can be used to unlock additional benefits for the county through integrated offerings in the town and surrounding area. Cahir is a historic town and its visitors numbers have increased significantly over the past decade, known for its iconic Cahir Castle (3rd most visited attraction of the county) and Swiss Cottage. 

The proposed Greenway will generate greater linkage between the Rock of Cashel and Cahir Castle and has the potential to increase safety and accessibility to points of interests for locals, tourists and vulnerable groups. The aim will be to enhance the visitor experience and contribute to the economic development of the local communities and the wider region.

Tipperary County Council have appointed Fehily Timoney and Company to progress the project through Phases 1 to 4 of the TII Project Management Guidelines. The Project is currently at Phase 1 Concept and Feasibility.
