Aherlow Woods Holiday Homes
These modern self catering holiday cottages are situated in the heart of the luscious Glen of Aherlow Nature Park (one of Ireland’s best kept secrets!) surrounded by the impressive Galtee Mountains. This really is a hiking / cycling enthusiast’s paradise, nestling between Ireland’s highest inland mountain range and the thickly forested Slievenamuck Ridge. There are a variety of marked walk ways and cycle trails of varying difficulty, with stunning, panoramic views. There are a number of prehistoric and early Christian sites throughout the glen and guided walks can be booked locally. An alternative way to explore the mountains is on horseback, the Hillcrest Riding Centre in nearby Galbally gives riding lessons and treks for riders of all levels of ability.
The tributaries of the River Suir flow through The Glen of Aherlow and offer excellent trout and perch fishing. Should you tire of exploring the surrounding countryside, you can relax in a game of golf at one of the local golf courses such as Tipperary Golf Club or Cahir Park Golf Club, . Alternatively enjoy a day at the races at the nearby Tipperary Racecourse.
The Glen is bounded by the rural villages of Bansha and Galbally, both of which have some lovely traditional pubs which give a real taste of friendly, rural Ireland. The area’s main town it Tipperary, which has plenty of shops, restaurants and pubs which often have traditional music sessions.
The Rock of Cashel is less than 20 miles drive from Aherlow. Located on an imposing site, overlooking the Tipperary countryside, the Rock has historic buildings dating back to 1100, including a well preserved round tower. This former seat of the Kings of Munster is still popular with royalty - the Queen of England visited it on her first official visit to Ireland.
While staying at our self catering accommodation in The Glen of Aherlow, you are centrally located for touring the surrounding county of Tipperary and also its neighbouring counties Waterford, Limerick and Kilkenny.
Great location and fantastic property … real friendly welcome … had one slight TV issue which was promptly fixed by the excellent Rosaline (Site Manager) … would definitely recommend.

We have just returned from another two weeks at Aherlow and had a great time again. The houses are excellent and Rosaline totally helpful as always.There's plenty of room, great facilities and peace too.We went as far as Waterford and Bunratty in the North, Adare, Killarney (at a push) and Kilkenny. However, the whole local area is excellent: Cashel, Cahir and Clonmel, with all the surrounding scenery, history and activity is enough to keep us coming back time and again. Even the weather was good! Can't wait for the next time.Margaret, John, Liz and Belle 1st-14th June 2014

Can hardly wait to re-book! Although we are not hikers, we were overwhelmed by the scenery, the views and the friendliness of the people. We used our cottage as a base for touring the area. Don't let the picture fool you as to size, this cottage is big. Just the right amount of furniture and amenities. It was hard to leave but our family of four look forward to returning. Have spread the word...best value and accommodation a tourist could want.

For 6 hikers in each house, and we took two houses, it was a perfect base in which to enjoy our post Christmas week. As each bedroom was ensuite and the "energy" bill was fair, we had hot water and heating when we wished. The rooms and the living area were spacious for 6 adults, and the houses were very clean.

House was really spacious & spotless. Very peaceful area. Perfect for exploring the lakes in the Galtee mountains & many loop walks through nature parks & forest and many leading to breathtaking views. Had an amazing time. Bring a radio. Sometimes very quiet in the evening time.
