Walking in Cahir
One of the most common activities carried out by visitors to South Tipperary is walking – with immediate access to the Galtee Mountains, Knockmealdown Mountains and Comeragh Mountains, this is hardly surprising. Walking in Cahir is a very satisfying activity and will give you a great appetite, something with which we can help you.
Walking in Cahir – The Galtee Mountains
If you want to walk the Galtee Mountains then you should contact the Galtee Walking Club who organise regular events in and around the Galtee Mountains which stretch southwards from Cahir.
Walking in Cahir – The Knockmealdown Mountains
If you take a quick 15 minute drive to Clogheen you have full access to the Knockmealdown Mountains which stretch from Newcastle to Ballyporeen on the Tipperary side and also have significant coverage in Waterford from Lismore across the county.
The St. Declan’s Way Pilgrimage Walk from Cashel to Ardmore (taking place in 2013 from July 24th to 28th – see here) takes in Cashel, Cahir, Ardfinnan, Goatenbridge, Lismore, Cappoquin, Aglish and Ardmore. If you want to explore the area of South Tipperary and West Waterford then this is certainly a great way to do it.
Walking in Cahir – The Comeragh Mountains
If you take a 15 minute drive out the Clonmel road you’ll arrive at the Comeraghs, another beautiful mountain range right on our doorstep – we truly are blessed. If you contact the guys at Peaks Mountaineering in Clonmel they’ll be able to guide you in the direction of the best walks around. They also organise annual walks such as the Knockmealdown Crossing. If you continue into the Comeraghs proper you’ll come across the Nire Valley Walking club which organises the annual Comeragh Bogtrot.
