This place is pure magical. From the scenery to the wonderful hospitality you receive wherever you go. It has a magical feel about it. The glen is flourishing in wildlife and a clear start sky at night just tops it off.

The Glen is very atmospheric if one is only driving through it with its many tree "tunnels". To get the best views of the surrounding hills and mountains, one really needs to be able to walk the tracks, rather than drive on the roads.

A jewel of a spot approx 5 to 6 miles in length hidden under the Galtee Mountains. Ideal retreat for walkers, just to stretch your legs or a challenging hike for 3 or 4 hours. Yearly walking Festival in Spring. Some little gems include Mandy Parslow Pottery and Aherlow House Hotel set in the wooded area and Tidy Towns small... More

An amazing area of outstanding natural beauty just a few miles from Tipperary town. A real bolt hole to get away from it all!

Even when it's wet outside the Glen is a beautiful spot. I didn't get much time to view the place, but walking through the trees on the trails was very enjoyable and the views over the glen were certainly worth it. Make sure you bring good walking boots as the trails can get slippy. I did find that telephone reception... More

We stayed at the Ballykisteen Golf Resort for 3 nights. It's only 15 minutes away. We ended up going to the Glen all 3 nights because the view was so amazing. The first night had the best weather. The sun was glinting off the mountains just before sunset and it looked like the heavens were opening up. It was absolutely... More

A very scenic place surrounded by mountains . We took one of the walks here and it was a fantastic easy walk for a 5 year old. The kids loved seeing afew rabbits along the way and we even managed to get a glimpse of a deer in the distance
