The town is on the Suir Valley Drive. It has a colourful medieval character and grew around Ormond Castle in the 14th century. The lovely bridge which links Carrickmore (big Carrick) with Carrickbeg (little Carrick) dates from 1447.

On the site of a pre-Reformation church is the Carrick-on-Suir Heritage Centre where the exhibits reflect the social, ecclesiastical and political life of the town.

A major attraction is Ormond Castle & Manor House. Carrick on Suir Golf Club is just 3km from the town and 9km away is The Village Stables at Clonea Power.

The River Walk along the Suir is part of the East Munster Way long distance walk. The South Leinster Way, another long distance walking route, starts in the town.
