A very warm Irish welcome awaits you at Bruden Fidelma, Sister Fidelma Bed and Breakfast. Situated in the centre of town in a quiet side street, just 2 minutes walk from the famous Rock of Cashel, you will find this lovely Georgian town house the perfect base to explore this historic town and beautiful part of Tipperary.
Built in 1808, the house has recently been refurbished to create warm and homely bed and breakfast accommodation.
Ba mhaith liom fáilte a fharadh romhaibh go leir - I wish you a warm welcome to Bruden Fidelma - Sister Fidelma's Guesthouse. I am delighted that you have decided to check out this website and hope you will be interested to visit the guesthouse itself. For those who have followed the adventures of Sister Fidelma of Cashel, and her partner in crime solving in 7th Century Ireland, Brother Eadulf of Seaxmund's Ham, this is the ideal place to start if you want to visit the ancient capital of this kingdom of Munster - Caiseal na Rí - Cashel of the Kings.
In Sister Fidelma's time, hospitality was a central concept in Irish society and the rules of the guesthouses were enshrined in law. Serving the needs of the travellers was all-important, as those who have read the Fidelma stories will know. While the laws have been amended slightly, the attitude of taking care of the guests and travellers has remained important throughout the ages into modern Irish life. And you will find it a cardinal principle of your hosts - Olivia and PJ Quinlan.
I am delighted to give my personal recommendation to Bruden Fidelma. Enjoy your stay.
