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

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.
