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

We lived near Tipperary and never full appreciated the beauty of the Glen until we had kids. Now it's a regular destination for picnics and forest exploration! I wish the picnic tables at Christ the King could be fixed up though as some are quite dangerous

It's a pretty drive from Bansha to Tipperary via the Glen of Aherlow, stopping at the viewpoint by Christ the King statue. From here there's a walking trail through the woods. Along the route there are other stopping points and tourist attractions. Some businesses appear to be struggling or even for sale. There are great views of the Glen but... More

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
