One county in Ireland has been listed as among the ‘best holiday destinations for 2022’ by Conde Nast Traveller magazine.
Tipperary will be one of the top five locations in the world for ‘foodies’, according to the leading travel publication.
The Munster county has been chosen as one of the best for food lovers as part of the news outlet’s ’22 holiday destinations for 2022′.
The other regions chosen are Birmingham Jersey, both in the UK, Serbia, and Bend, Oregon in the United States.
Tipperary is the only Irish destination deemed a must-visit by the prestigious magazine.
According to the publication, there will be “a raft of enticing new experiences and openings” in the county in 2022.
It says that the premier county “has long held an appeal for history buffs due to the atmospheric Rock of Cashel landmark…but it has rarely been more than a half-day bullet point as part of a longer itinerary”.
“But 2022 should see guests pump the breaks, as there is much more to enjoy in this cosy, characterful county, from local artisans and family-run woollen mills, to craft distilleries and ancient cave formations,” Conde Nast Traveller adds.
“In spring, Relais & Chateaux will open its newest property in Cashel. An artful renovation of a grand 18th-century house once home to Ireland’s archbishops, Cashel Palace will offer 42 smart rooms and suites, a promising spa and a restaurant focusing on hyper-local, seasonal dishes,” the article continues.
“A cornucopia of goodies can also be gobbled up on Tipperary Food Tours, which take in honey farms – showcasing the importance of protecting the tiny but impactful Irish black bee – and trad cheesemakers where you can indulge in an unfathomably creamy wedge of Cashel Blue.
“Walk it all off along the blustery shoreline of Lough Derg, where you’ll be joined by kayakers, paddleboarders and cyclists whizzing alongside acres of cheerful wildflower meadows.”
The magazine also lists the best destinations for culture lovers, adventure junkies and families in 2022.
Five areas that are best for culture lovers are Oslo, Norway; New Orleans, Louisiana, USA; Egypt; Kingston, Jamaica; and Menorca, Spain.
Central Tanzania; Siquijor, Philippines; The Daintree, Queensland, Australia; Beijing, China; Sierras Chicas, Argentina; Hachinohe, Japan; and Kaunas, Lithuania are deemed the best spots for adventurers.
The best locations for families are Trang Archipelago, Thailand; Edinburgh, Scotland; Samos, Greece; Almere, Netherlands; and Stewart Island, New Zealand.
