Walks in Tipperary
This time of year provides a great opportunity to get out in the fresh air and to stretch those limbs as we begin another year! Here in Tipperary and also in the adjoining counties of Clare, Offaly and Galway we have some great looped walks suitable for all ages. There is the wonderful Keeper Hill walk just outside Nenagh with amazing views of Lower Ormond and Lough Derg, The Devils Bit near Templemore with it ancient story of how it gained its unusual shape as a result of the Devil biting a piece off the hill in anger and then spitting it out (he didn’t like the taste, apparently!) The rejected piece then landed in South Tipperary became the Rock of Cashel!
There is also the leisurely Sli Eala which links Nenagh town and Dromineer and offers some rolling farmland vistas as you stroll along the banks of the Nenagh River and then a very family friendly circular walk in Garrykennedy that is part of the Lough Derg Way.
All these walks are suitable for those with moderate experience and can be taken at an easy pace.
