Having been very familiar with the scenic glen of aherlow some years ago I had mixed feelings about my trip through the past.The beauty was the same except that the fields looked much smaller and many of the homesteads had been replaced by more modern structures much near the road.

Glen of Aherlow is well worth a visit, if you enjoy landscape views and open spaces. It has the backdrop of the Galtee mountains. Beautiful walks and mountain climbing if you are up for it. Make sure you have the correct climbing gear and observe the safety rules, weather conditions etc. Enjoy!

I come from Poland, and Glen of Aherlow reminds me a little of mountains which are near my hometown. There is a lots o well kept walking tracks, picnics spots, lovely views. As long as its not heavy raining there is always something to do up there, all year round

My husband and I recently visited Ireland and we wanted to drive through the highly recommended Glen of Aherlow. Unfortunately since it was a Sunday (September 6, 2015) the information center was closed and so we didn't have much information regarding the Glen. We drove from Cahir Castle through the Glen on to our way to Cork. The part of... More
