"Holy Cross Abbey" County Tipperary Tip by orlikins

County Tipperary, Ireland: 5 reviews and 7 photos

Holy Cross Abbey is near Thurles in North Tipperary, on the river Suir. My parents used to drag us here every May for an open-air mass. There's an annual memorial service to Padre Pio here. The restoration work on the church is very good, but I just think it's inappropriate to have a crappy little gift shop on church grounds. Should have some photos of it, will upload one soon.


Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
