Is there anything to actually do in Thurles?

Driving through this town we stopped for something to eat. What a joke! Nothing open ( it was about 4pm on a Monday). Ended up in a cafe, I think it was called Fiona's where they were putting the chairs on the tables around us ( we only had a cuppa with sandwiches). Our table was seated next to a socket with so many wires coming from it which included a broken fan balancing on a radiator - how safe is that? We walked around the square and were completely unimpressed. This was a sunny day, yet the town looked dated, dull and dour. Avoid at all costs. So my question is, where should we have eaten that s close to Thurles?

If your advice is avoid at all costs, why are you interested in where you should have eaten?

There are a number of options for things to do, places to eat in Thurles. Personally I don't like Brighton but don't go round giving grief about the place.

I don't personally know about Thurles itself. October 2016 we stayed and ate at the Horse and Jockey. Enjoyed the experience. As I understand it, we were not too far from Thurles. Approximately 15 min. drive.

Did you really open an account to moan about a small town you stopped off in on a Monday? I think you are the joke. Get over yourself!

And to think it all happened in Hayes' Hotel Thurles on November 1, 1884. I've a great friend living in Thurles and he always reminds me to bless myself when we're passing by Semple Stadium.

Mise48,

Hayes' Hotel is hallowed ground. Semple Stadium is a short walk away, you might want to genuflect up there. lol

'Beyaysus Hayzes' as my Thurles housemate used to call it in the day ;-)

Op there's always plenty to do you just have to get out there and find it...
