Just back from a truly wonderful weekend. We travelled with a group of friends last friday - 30th January. We enjoyed two great grade B walks -one on Saturday and one on Sunday. Approx 4 hours each. Each walk was led by a guide with sweepers at the rear - very safe. The event was very well organised with bus... More

Whilst staying at Bansha Castle for a week, I went running every morning around the Glen - following just some of the many signposted trails and walking routes. The trip to Lake Mursky is a gem, because of the unbelievable view. It was cold, windy and january, but it's not too hard and worth the effort!

Stayed here in April. Initially, driving through , you wonder if you're in the back end of no where - but that's just perfect. If you stay at the hotel in the nature park, you wake up to the most wondrous views of the mountains. Be sure to pack your hiking gear as once you see the place, you'll want... More

The Ring of Kerry, the Cliffs of Moher, and many other destinations in Ireland get much notice and lots of tourists, but the Glen of Aherlow, with the tallest inland mountain range (the Galtees) and the Ballyhoura Trail is a hidden gem. Very few tourists even know of this gorgeous area southwest of Tipperary (Kanye West and Kim Kardashian honeymooned... More

We had been staying close by in the Ballykisteen Hotel and golf resort, and wanted to go for a drive in the area. Having been to the Glen myself, a good number of years ago, I was anxious to return again. We headed into Tipperary town and off towards Bansha, then along the road towards Aherlow and Galbally.Halfway along the... More

If you are into outdoor activities i.e. walking, checkout the web site http://aherlow.com/walking/ as there is plenty of choice, good parking and great views. There are local campsite, pubs and shops but check opening times based on time of year.

Drive to the statue of Christ the King. There is an overlook right next to it with wonderful views of the glen. Not to be missed if you are in the area.
