BirdhillBirdhill (Cnocán an Ēin Fhill – The Hill of the Fair Bird) is a small picturesque village in County Tipperary on the N7. The village benefits from wonderful views of Lough Derg and it has excellent amenities for a village of its size. It is served by two pubs with restaurant facilities, furniture store, self-catering apartments, and bed and breakfast facilities. The village green is attractively landscaped and a modern sculpture had been installed. A village park and a walking trail have been developed by the community recently.

The village has benefited from environmental and visual enhancements through the work of the residents and the Birdhill Tidy Village Committee.

The village has a wonderful record in Tidy Towns competitions since becoming involved in 1991 and holds the title of “Irelands Tidiest Village” for the years 2006, 2007 and 2008. It also has the distinction of winning a Gold Medal in the European Entente Floral competition.
