Holycross Abbey

hollycross

Holycross is a very special and sacred place where you can walk in the footsteps of ancient Monks. Experience firsthand, through local guides, the story of Holycross, spanning 10 centuries of a changing social, political and religious landscape, in the very heart of Ireland.
Visit the beautifully restored 12 century Cistercian “Holycross Abbey” now our working Parish church.

Immerse yourself in the tale of “Cell Uachtair Lamahnn” (“The Church of the 8 Hands”), and of “The Good Woman’s Son”, and hear how these events resulted in their being, not just one, but two Relics (pieces) of the True Cross of Christ, being displayed in the Abbey here, relics that can still be seen today, and how they changed forever, the face of Tipperary.

Visit one of the homely country Pubs, or one of the fine dining venues, take a stroll around the beautiful Village Green or just relax by the peaceful River Suir as it gently makes its way through the evening shadows of the majestic “Holycross Abbey”.
