"This pleasingly prim, Queen Anne-style mansion dating from 1734 is shaping up to be the dream bijou bolt hole when it reopens in spring 2022. It has welcomed the likes of Jackie Kennedy and Richard Burton in the past and there’s a nod to the building’s history at the new restaurant Bishop’s Buttery."

In the 1740’s, the Archbishop’s Land Agent, Richard Guinness, brewed ale using hops grown in the Palace’s gardens and passed his expertise onto his son Arthur who used the £100 inheritance from his Godfather, Archbishop Arthur Price, to buy the 999-year lease in St James Gate and start his famous eponymous brewing empire.
Cashel Palace may have been built over 290 years ago, but their sustainability credentials are both current and contemporary, which include NZEB Specifications, namely Nearly Zero Energy Building. The restoration is overseen by conservation architects to ensure as much of the original palace is preserved.
A proud Relais & Chateaux member that debuted in March 2022, Cashel Palace’s dining offering is exceptional in every sense. With a deep connection to the Golden Vale and rich pastures that surround the hotel, much produce is sourced locally to give guests an authentic taste of Tipperary with which Director of Culinary, Stephen Hayes, formerly of Cliff House and de Librije, creates an exciting culinary experience.
