Ireland’s Best Walking Destinations
The world has many, many fantastic hiking destinations. Here in the Golden Vale we like to think that the Knockmealdown Mountains is among the elite of Ireland’s best walking destinations.
You won’t yet find it listed among Ireland’s best walking destinations destinations in any book or website that we know of, but that may all change in the very near future. The area is being seen for the wonderful walks, climbs and unspoilt amenities it possesses. So now is a great time to visit. Get in before the secret that is the Knockmealdown Mountains in South Tipperary and West Waterford is known far and wide. Be one of those that can say they walked the fantastic and famous Knockmealdown Mountains before they became ‘the place to be’ when it comes to mountain walking activities. It is truly among Ireland’s best walking destinations. 14 mountains worth of wonderful climbs along with absolutely spectacular scenery to the Golden Vale, the Vee Valley and down to the coastline to the sea in Waterford.
Please feel free to browse around the site and see some of our Walks (not for the dedicated walker, but a nice selection of walks for those who just like a ramble through the mountains and foot-hills, mostly on pre-defined trails.)
