Glen of Aherlow, Co. Tipperary

For the song of the same name, see Glen of Aherlow .

The Glen of Aherlow is a picturesque valley nestling between Slievenamuck and the Galtee Mountains in the western part of South Tipperary in Ireland. The principal village is Lisvarrinane or more commonly spelt Lisvernane with a hamlet at Rossadrehid where Aherlow creamery was located before its closure in the late 20th century. Other adjacent centres of population are the villages of Galbally on the western fringe, Kilross and Bansha which commands the eastern approach. Across the northern flank of Slievenamuck lies Tipperary Town.

The tradition of Geoffrey Keating still lives on in the folklore of the Glen of Aherlow. Keating preached sermons there, receiving refuge and, according to tradition, lived in a cave for much of the time while on the run and compiling his magnum opus, Foras Feasa Ar Éirinn .

The picture below is an image of 'Christ the King' statue which overlooks the valley that the Glen of Aherlow is situated in. 'Christ the King' is situated on Slievenamuck on the approach road to Tipperary Town. As Aherlow is quite scenic, the car park at 'Christ the King' is often full during the summer and offers beautiful views on a clear day. Tourism in the area is strong year-round but especially in summer. Those looking to balance a retreat in the countryside with access to historically-important towns and villages can find their way to the glen. Aherlow Woods , Tipperary Camping and Aherlow House Hotel and Lodges are just some of the accommodation-related amenities available in the area. Panoramic view above the Glen of Aherlow.
