Clonmel is a really pleasant destination scenically nestling beneath the Comeragh mountains, with fine shopping facilities and some very good restaurants and hotels to savour and enjoy. In a sporting context it has a racecourse, a greyhound track, a golf course dating back to 1911 and boasts of an Olympic medal winner Dr Pat O Callaghan. On a recent visit we meandered out of town astride the river Suir to the hotel Minella, an imposing Georgian building erected in1863. On arrival, it being the festive season, we were offered a complimentary glass of mulled wine by the very friendly reception staff. We dined in the atmospheric lounge bar overlooking mature gardens and the nearby river. The food was good traditional fare, well presented, efficiently served and accompanied by a good quality house wine. Desserts were appropriate to the time of year and coffee arrived with tasty home made mince pies. Verdict - a thoroughly enjoyable experience to be repeated.
