The Rock of Cashel has a very ancient history, documented since the 4th Century. The large Cathedral, ancient round tower and the very early, Romanesque Cormac's Chapel stand witnesses to many of the stirring events of Irish History
St Patrick converted the local King, Aenghus, here in the 5th Century. Brian Boru was crowned King of Ireland on this spot in the early 11th century.
Ashmore House Bed and Breakfast is the perfect base for fishing in Tipperary. The River Suir is regarded as one of Ireland's finest brown trout fisheries.
The characteristics of the Suir make it ideal for the production of brown trout and the conditions are just right for their survival and growth in what is a near-perfect environment.
Very few rivers can equal it in terms of the overall numbers of trout that it produces and that are available to the angler. The average size of the trout ranges from ¾ to 2 lb in different areas, depending on the habitat. Their lifespan is relatively short and few trout exceed 4 years of age.
It is the second longest river in Ireland being 115 miles long. Together with its tributaries it drains a total catchment area of 1,394 square miles.
It is a wide river ranging from 25 - 35 metres in its middle sections. To fish this river body waders are practically essential. The river has a fine gravel bed, which gives a solid base underfoot.
This is a big river with a strong current and anglers should take due care when wading.
