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of Aherlow is a great scenic area with clear views of the Galtee Mountains, surrounded by woodland walkways and holds historical reference to 1916 Easter Rising.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

A beautiful part of secret Ireland , hidden from the main tourist routes , well worth a dirversion if travelling to or from Cork Dublin on the M8, from Dublin divert at Cashel J9to Tipperary Town and then follow the signs for the Glen , from Cork divert at Cahir J10 and follow Limerick road to tipp town

Fab views of the Galtees. Lots of walks to choose from and to suit all levels of fitness. The maps at the start of routes do not always appear to be in synchronisation with the walk. Also a pity to see rubbish in such a picturesque area. We headed for Mursky Lake and found it a tough ascent, due to... More

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.
