The Glen of Aherlow is a lush valley where the River Aherlow runs between the Galtee Mountains and the wooded ridge of Slievenamuck. The Glen is an extremely popular location for walking, horseriding, cycling and fishing. Coupled with prehistoric and early Christian sites, there's something for everyone here.
The Galtee Mountains are Ireland’s highest inland mountain range, with a variety of peaks including Galtymore at 3,018 feet (919m). The Galtees provide the challenge required for today’s serious hill-walker and mountain climber. There are five corrie lakes on the range, accessible only by foot to add to the attractiveness of the range, while the Coillte woodlands create a most pleasant entry to the Galtee and offer many tracks and trails.
With easy access from the M8 to the south, and the N24 for the north
Kings Yard and Galtee Castle car park allow easy access to the south face of Galtymore while Glencush Boreen Trailhead offers access to the north face of the Galtees.
