Knockmealdown Mountains Travel Guide: 15 reviews and 45 photos
The Knockmealdown Mountains are located in Southern Ireland on the borders of County Tipperary and County Waterford. The range stretches 25 km from east to west and there are at least 15 different peaks, the highest of which is Knockmealdown, at 794 meters, making it the 46th highest mountain in Ireland.
The Knockmealdown range offers wonderful hiking and walking opportunities and they are easy to access. Clogheen in South Tipperary is the nearest village to the mountains though the larger towns of Clonmel and Cahir could also be a base for a visit.
Despite this ease of access there is a definite sense of remoteness when hiking on the range. On our most recent trip we climbed six of the main summits and walked for 8 hours, yet we met only two other people all day!
- Pros:Beautiful scenery, easy access
- Cons:Paths are very bad in places
- In a nutshell:A great place to hike
None of the mountains in the Knockmealdowns are too challenging but there are many distinct peaks which can be combined... more travel advice
After descending from the mountains the final 10 km of our walk followed the East Munster Way and later the Tipperary... more travel advice
