Ireland's Hidden Gem

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

The poor service from the waiting staff at the hotel detracts so much from the stunning location for this hotel. The food was very disappointing for dinner as I have often come to the hotel for dinner and a walk. On this particular day, the waiter was very rude and did not ask why my meal was not touched as...

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

We go here all the time, there are so many walks, loops and hikes and they're excellently laid out. Rivers, mountains, lakes and forest all in one place. The hotel is a nice spot too, new management seem to be turning it around. Galteemore being the second highest peak in Ireland has fantastic views. But any of the easier walks... More

I remember having lunch here around 2011 and feeling very disappointed with the expensive tasteless food that was served in a very faulty towers manner. but my girlfriend convinced me to return in September 2015 with herself and her son. now I have to admit, I was surprised. I had tempura prawns as a starter and I was licking my... More
