What did we like about the Galtee Mountains?
• The breath-taking view of county Tipperary, Limerick and Cork
• The high, steep and dangerous crags, cliffs and rocks
• You can explore beautiful mountain lakes, waterfalls and rich bog life with your family (they are easy to access, located at the base of the mountain range)
• The mountain range is less known, so you don’t have to wait in a queue to climb Galteemore (I can’t say that about Croagh Patrick), we met only a few hikers during our two trips
• There is a small spring near the top of the mountain where the water is crystal clear. Since we didn’t bring enough water, we enjoyed drinking from the spring.
Mitchelstown Cave is one of the largest and most complex cave systems in Ireland. On the guided tour you will follow ancient passageways and visit massive caverns in which you are surrounded by indescribable dripstone formations, stalactites, stalagmites and huge calcite pillars and one of Europe’s finest columns the inspiring “Tower of Babel” which stands some 9 meters in height.
Rock of Cashel
It’s huge, it’s complex, it’s iconic, there is nothing like it anywhere else in the world and it’s right here in Cashel at the heart of Tipperary. The Rock of Cashel (Carraig Phádraig), more formally St. Patrick’s Rock, it is also known as Cashel of the Kings.
