The Irish name for Terryglass is Tír Dhá Ghlas and means "land of the two streams" 

The village is located on the R493 regional road on the north-eastern shore of Lough Derg near where the River Shannon enters the Lough. It is a civil parish in the historical barony of Ormond Lower. It is also an Ecclesiastical parish in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Killaloe. Terryglass won the Irish Tidy Towns Competition in 1983 and 1997

In the early Middle Ages, the place was known as Tír dá glass. A monastery (abbey) was founded there by Columba of Terryglass (d. 13 December 552) in 549. He was the son of Colum mac Crimthainn and a disciple of St. Finnian of Clonard. He was one of the Twelve Apostles of Ireland. The monastery became a centre of learning and produced (about 1160) the Book of Leinster, which is now housed in Trinity College Dublin. The Book is an important collection of history, tales and poems written in Middle Irish and is believed to be the work of Áed Ua Crimthainn, a 12th century abbot of Terryglass.

The Vikings frequently raided the abbey and in 1164 the abbey was burnt. A remaining wall from this abbey can be seen at the back of Paddy’s pub in the village. Terryglass has two historic wells, the Eye Well and the Headache Well, both of which are said to have curative properties.
