Situated, right on the N20 National Primary Road, at almost exactly half distance between Cork and Limerick, Ireland’s second and third largest cities, Buttevant is today a thriving town with a vibrant and highly active community. This strategic location has meant that Buttevant has been a town of great importance (being the only Walled Town in medieval North Cork) since the Norman de Barry clan made it their home in the 12th century.
The town has managed to maintain the best of both worlds with small, friendly community combined with big town facilities, amenities and opportunities to live, work and do business with much to offer for visitors and residents alike.
Buttevant Community Council meet on the first Monday of every month at the Muintir na Tire Hall at 7:30pm. Everybody is welcome to come along.
We have a rich & fascinating history. Buttevant Heritage Group hold highly engaging guided tours of the town every Saturday at 3pm during the summer months, starting outside St. Mary’s Church on the Main Street
