About the Area Around Cahir

Cahir sits at the eastern end of the Galty (Galtee) mountains and is conveniently located at junction 10 of the M8 motorway. As well as being a lovely place to visit itself, it is also the gateway to a large area filled with interesting towns and villages, a wide range of heritage features, three large mountain ranges, the famous Slevenamon (the maidens mountain), two large rivers and numerous smaller ones.

With all of these geographical features it is a wonderful area for walking on the hills, walking in the valleys, walking along the rivers or simply wandering around the towns and villages. Cyclists will also enjoy touring around the area. With the main valleys being flat-bottomed you can pick an easy route or, if you need a more strenuous challenge, try some of the roads that criss-cross the Knockmealdown Mountains. If you are here with a car you can plot a whole range of interesting tours linking the towns and villages and taking in the views from the mountain roads.

The mountains are predominantly of sandstone but an area of limestone, in the valley between the Galty and Knockmealdown mountains, is home to a large cave system, part of which is open to the public. Check out the Mitchelstown Cave on the 'Things to see—in Cahir' page.

There is a wealth of things to see and do in the area. Find out more in the 'Things to See' and 'Things to Do' sections.
