Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Situated on the banks of the Clashawaley river Fethard has one of the best preserved defensive walls in the country . Keep an eye out for Sheela.

Great to see the walls and so many of the historic buildings in Fethard so well kept. We walked along them and around them and visited the graveyard. Great visit to a super village.

Fethard has done a wonderful job in preserving and highlighting their medieval walls. A portion along the river is accessible through the Holy Trinity Churchyard (COI) and offers a rare opportunity to clamber up on the battlements for the full experience.

I've read poor reviews but honestly I think they might reflect a person's frame of mind more than the sights of Feathard. This really is a beautiful spot to visit. After a lovely walk along the outer perimeter of the historic walls and down by the river there are at least two great eateries to drop in to. A late breakfast or lunch at Dooks, or Tea and cake at Alla's. Fetherd is a most unexpected gem. Easiest to visit from Clonmel or on a clear and bright day from Callan thru Cloneen.

A lovely walk along the river by the walls of medieval town. Several explanatory plaques describe and explain the different remaining parts and buildings.

The walls are very well preserved and made for a very interesting visit. There is a lovely walkway that you can follow along that takes you right around the town and alongside the river. We also found a beautiful old mill nearby which is now a theatre that had a lot of charm. Well worth a quick stop while you are in the area! It would be great if there was better information posts alongside the walls.

Just amazing. Fascinating history from the Normans through to Cromwell. You can get guided tours of the medieval walls, hear local folklore, visit the museum and Coolmore. Lovely places for coffee, eg Emily's or the Patisserie or McCarthy's, a real historical pub. Really interesting.

It may not be the biggest tourist attraction featured in tourist brochures but Fethard is well worth a visit. Being close to so many even more famous places such as Cork or Cahir, you may overlook this small historic town with its medieval walls, beautiful,old abbey and famous Mc Carthy's pub, plus Dook's Fine Foods restaurant with its famous chef and small but so welcoming Emily's deli and tearoom. If you want a peaceful break in the Tipperary area while touring aroiund then try Fethard, and you wont be disappointed. If, in addition, you want to stay the night, a sure winner is the Cozie B&B where 'everything' is excellent including one of the best irish breakfasts you will find throughout Ireland.

Such an historical gem. Well worth taking a guided tour. There is a walk that takes you right around the town and alongside the river. Brilliant for a picnic. views from the easily accessible path are wonderful. Path is flat and wheelchair friendly.

Even in the rain it was well worth walking around. A very interesting experience. Fethard is a small town and the walls can be easily reached on foot from the centre.
