walked the trails for a couple of hours.Lots of choices in trails,though all were steep in spots.limited parking in the area.When we went there were lots of flowers and trees in bloom and some spectacular views.Great way to work off a few calories from the giant Irish breakfasts

Did the mountain biking. great fun but if your not into cycling dont go beyond the third track. think its the white track. thought I would never see the end of the red track. Tough going up hill but worth it for the thrill of going down

We go to Ballhoura fairly regulary, it is about 40 minute drive from Limerick it is well worth the drive to walk in this wide open space it also caters for bikers. All you need is on site and the scenery is out of this world.

This really is a jewel of a attraction. The scenery is fantastic and the facilities, equipment hire and general level of service from the staff is top notch. Something for everyone here if you like the outdoors. Can't recommend it enough.

Thanks to Tripadvisor, we spent our last day in Ireland hiking in the Ballyhoura on the Darragh Hills Loop. Don't be discouraged by the start, which is quite wet and muddy. This was a very challenging hike, taking around 2hrs to complete, with numerous hills and steep accents. We thoroughly enjoyed the hike and were glad for the exercise after... More

Both of these walks are ideal for all ages and a Picnic is a must especially at the waterfall in the Keale... More

I live in this area, not far from Ardpatrick. I am so priveledged as a UK national to live here.. The walks are peaceful and could be romantic. Get a nice pic nic together and take your partner out over looking the Galtees and Blackwater Valley. Support the Ballyhouras
