Grogan’s Ice Cream

Family, International, Ireland

Our plans to visit Tipperary were vague. We just thought we’d like to see the area that our Great Great Grandparents emigrated from during The Great Famine so detouring to the town of Cashel for ice cream fit with the plan. With the help of Yelp! we navigated to downtown Cashel, found a pay and display car park, and walked to Grogan’s Ice Cream where we were warmly welcomed by Tommy, the owner, and Thomas, his son. The delicious ice cream alone made it worth the trip but when we told Tommy honestly that we’d come to Cashel specifically for his ice cream, he encouraged us to also visit Cashel Rock, gave us complimentary general admission tickets and walking directions that would also give us views of an ancient abbey on our way to St Patrick’s Rock of Cashel.

The Irish Sun recognized Grogan’s as among the Best Ice Cream Parlors in Ireland!

We made it to the Top of the World, or at least the northernmost land mass in Europe, Magerøya Island. On our coach tour we learned much about the natural history and the cultures of this starkly beautiful place.
