Nenagh, Tipperary, Ireland

My beautiful award winning village is somewhat sleepy, traditional, and quiet, yet only 10 minutes from a busy town, and not so far from the big cities, giving the best of both worlds.
The people are very friendly and helpful ,there is plenty of beautiful flora, wildlife and birds, even wild horses and goats up in the hills. They say the Silvermines gets under your skin and you will always return.
