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.

What a pleasant and lovely surprise we had on arriving. The welcome we were afforded on our welcome was second to none. The site is well situated and is a perfect spot for anyone looking for a peaceful spot to stay. The toilets and shower area are spotless and there is no tacky extra charges for the showers.

What a beautiful area! We enjoyed the drive and the ability to stop & take in nature's glory. The statue of Christ the King overlooking the valley is impressive and interesting.

The scenery was wonderful and we had the pleasure of driving a hired classic car through the lovely mountain gaps and hairpin bends etc.

You can walk , meet the locals at the pubs or just gaze out over the glen right next to a life size statue of Christ the King! Plenty of cows and calves and many shades of green to behold

The view is gorgeous and the food is just as good! The staff is always friendly, never bothered by the kids. There is outdoor and indoor seating, really really nice.
