The Glen of Aherlow.

Glen of Aherlow. Homeleigh Farmhouse b and bThe Glen of Aherlow is a quiet country valley, secluded but not isolated. It stretches from the N24, South of the famed town of Tipperary, through sixteen (16) miles of unspoilt countryside affording some of the most breath taking scenery imaginable. The Glen sits between the Galtee mountains on the South and the Slievenamuck Ridge on the North. The Galtees, Irelands highest inland mountain range, boast five spectacular corrie lakes, dominated by a variety of magnificent peaks Galteemore at 3,018 ft. This expansive vista is further enhanced by the many streams cascading down the face of the mountain. The foothills are forested as is the entire 12 miles of the Slievenamuck ridge, providing the walker with a variety of delightful woodland trails. The mountain climber and serious hillwalker will enjoy ample challenge on the upper slopes of the Galtee Range. The soil is acidic and supports an abundance of mosses, heathers, ferns and lichens. Proving a delight to any botanist. The early morning or late evening walker may encounter members of the deer herds who inhabit the forested slopes.
