Plan an outing for next Wednesday 3rd July to include a trip to Swiss Cottage in Cahir, Co Tipperary. This OPW site, along with all other OPW sites in Ireland has free admission on the 1st Wednesday of every month.
Swiss Cottage was built over 200 years ago in 1810 for Richard & Emily Butler, Lord & Lady Cahir, as a garden folly on the pleasure grounds of their large estate. This ‘cottage orne’ was built for the Butlers to escape the formality of town life & spend the day living, what they romantically considered to be the joys of simple country living! Take a guided tour & see for yourself! For further information contact 052 7441144, www.heritageireland.ie. Open 10am-5.15pm daily. Access by guided tour.
