Tipperary boasts an enormous range of walks to suit everyone.
The widely contrasting countryside is criss-crossed with byways, forest paths, nature trails, country lanes & minor roads, all leading to splendid isolation in the rugged terrain of the Galtee Mountains, Comeragh Mountains, and Knockmealdown Mountains & Slievenamon.
Tipperary is a unique walking destination.
Some popular walks include;
Some 7 miles north-east of Clonmel is Slievenamon (the mountain of the women) which is a conical hill 2,368 ft. high. It is a lovely climb & is best accessed via Kilcash (off the N76 travelling from Clonmel to Kilkenny).
This is a healthy walk west of Clonmel town & visitors should be sure to see this place that commemorates Ireland's national apostle who is said to have preached here.
The Galtee Mountains have long been known as a walker's paradise but now the Glen of Aherlow with eight looped walks on Slievenamuck & two linear walks in the Galtee Mountains provides something for everyone from families to walking group. Car parking, picnic areas & information panels are provided at each trail head.
