About Us

Fiddown owes its unique character and attraction to its location on the banks of the river Suir. Situated on the edge of the Golden Vale, the Suir valley is sheltered by the Comeragh and the Walsh Mountains and by Slieve Na mBan.

The Village Name

The name Fiddown is derived from ‘’Fiodh’’ meaning a wood and ‘’Doon’’ meaning a fort. This was the location of an old Celtic castle built at the Moat to defend the river crossing.
