"An 18th-century, Palladian pile of an estate - Cashel Palace has cut an imposing figure over Tipperary since the 1730s. The original hotel closed in 2015 and was taken over by Relais & Chateaux a few years later.
"After a couple of pandemic-related delayed opening dates, we’re excited for a proper peek of the restored interiors, which have played host to Jackie Kennedy, Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor and Princess Diana in its former life.
"Three acres of gardens are yours to wander and a slick spa has been added, but there are also original fireplaces and centuries-old windows for history buffs to admire."
