A real gem in the heart of Ireland. The mist on the mountains obscured our views in the morning but when it cleared what a real gem of beauty. Take your time and drive through the glen stopping off at a pub or a local shop to support the local economy and meet real Irish people.

We walked here having spent 30 euros in a taxi for a return trip. The walk is through woods with a few viewing points, coming from Co Wicklow, The Garden County, it was very disappointing.

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
