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.

The Glen is a gem! There is something for everyone in the Glen of Aherlow. The views are breathtaking. I'm definitely considering taking a break here. I passed what looked like a state of the art camp side and numerous guest houses. Tipperary really has a lot to offer for just one county. Time to explore Tipp more.

Standing by the Christ the Saviour statue and looking out over the glen, gives you another view of what Ireland is all about with its rolling hills and green, green, and more green.

The Glen of Aherlow is a great scenic area with clear views of the Galtee Mountains, surrounded by woodland walkways and holds historical reference to 1916 Easter Rising.

It's what we want to hear when we visit old castle's and the like. It's the horrible history that excites and Cahir castle has it's fair share. Amazingly preserved, complete with murder holes, the castle's siege history is displayed in an informative interactive exhibition.

Very pretty and peaceful surroundings with surprisingly spectacular mountain views. Really a pleasant area to visit during a nice afternoon. We grabbed sandwiches and drinks and found a picnic table at a local park in the middle of the Glen and had a delightful meal in a beautiful spot.

After touring ruins and castles we wanted to break up the day and this was a great option. We were there on a sunny Sunday afternoon and it was getting a lot of use. For those not wanting to hike the view from the parking lot is worth a stop if you're in the area.
