This area is one of the most beautiful places in Ireland. Loads of secret finds and hideaway pubs. Once you get your bearings the tracks are very good with great views of the galtee mountains. Give yourself plenty of time and ideally make your treks on fine days

This is a quite stunningly beautiful part of Tipperary, with Slievenamuck Mountain on one side and the Galtee Mountains on the other. There is a spectacular view by the statue of Christ The King (worth a visit in itself) on the R664. We were based in the Glen of Aherlow during a holiday where we went out most days in... More

Although there are many, many places to,hike in Irleland, this area is one of our favorites. We started out about 9 am on about a 6 mile hike. We were the only ones hiking, trails are nicely groomed. The scenery was spectacular overlooking the Glen. To see Ireland in its natural beauty and glory. That's what our reward was!! The... More

Enjoy a days walking in the Glen of Aherlow. Loop Walk maps are available for a couple of Euro from the tourist office Cahir. Each map contains details of the walk / distance / climb ascent etc. Each walk is color coded with waypoint symbols/signposts. Fantastic. If you are into camping then stay at Glen of Aherlow Camping, brilliant. Aherlow... More

Walking in Ireland is problemmatical. I live in Scotland where we have the right to roam. Here in Ireland walking is restricted to waymarked trails. These are well done but there does not seem to be access to the mountain ridges. If you want walks that are at the most moderate then this is adequate but those seeking a real... More

If you are in the vicinity of the western end of Aherlow Valley inTipperary go along and visit the old ruin of Moor Abbey which is about a mile from the village of Galbally. It was founded in 1204 by the King of Thomond, Donough Gairbreach O'Brien as a Franciscan Abbey. Imagine it took three hundred years to complete. Just... More

We went for tea in the Glen of Aherlow Hotel and looking out at the Galtee mountains was like being in Austria. We also love the views from the Christ the King statue and the little villages nearby. Great for walkers with lots of looped walks nearby.
