The scenery here is simply stunning. There was snow on the top of the Galtees when we were here. The hikes are well laid out with good quality paths. There are walks to suit all abilities. Well worth a visit.

I drove from Tippereary town to the Glen of Aherlow (an easy drive) and stopped a few times along the way to look at the views . The countryside is stunning and there are several really interesting historical points along the way. The Glen is just beautiful and the entire county is spread out before you when you get to...

This is one of the most fertile and productive areas. With this, there is a great overview of the area. It should not be missed!

Went up here for lunch and was pretty quiet but the food was delicious and filing and service was very attentive. It's a bit of a random drive but I would go back again. The views are amazing. Loved it there

Marked it as a 4 not 5 because we took about an hour following a path. Had to finally stop because it was covered in heavy mud and the footprints we could see indicated the mud was likely to go over our shoes.

Take the R664 from Tipperary for magnificent views across this beautiful valley. There is a viewpoint along the route providing the ideal photo opportunity.

Visited the Glen of Aherlow on a day trip from Cork back to Shannon. We were visiting the towns my friend was born and raised in, so I was getting the locals tour. I had never hear of this glen, but glad we stopped. Absolutely beautiful. If you are driving near Tipperary make sure you stop here. Green Ireland at... More

Our driver Sean was from Tipperary and knew the Glen. We had morning coffee on a hotel terrace with a sweeping view. Wonderful. We were glad we left the driving to a local so we could relax and enjoy.

Had our last day in Ireland and decided to go for a drive. Come across the sign and thought why not. Proved to be a brilliant idea, the country throughout this area is magnificent and is very secluded. Away from the usual tourists areas, we even come across a few towns where all the signage was all gaelic, so obviously... More
