If you are looking for Leprechauns, shillelaghs and shamrocks painted in luminous green, don't come to the Ballyhoura region! But if it's authentic, unspoiled rural Ireland you're after, then you've come to the right place.

Situated in the southwest region of Ireland, on the borders of counties Tipperary, Limerick and Cork, Ballyhoura Country is an area of undulating green pastures, woodlands, hills and mountains. The ancient and unspoilt landscape, an abundance of significant heritage sites, thrilling outdoor activities and friendly people make it a wonderful location.

The Ballyhoura Mountains cover south-east Limerick and north-east Cork in central Munster, running east and west for about 6 miles on the borders of both counties.

The Cork side is largely afforested with commercial conifer, but there are still extensive areas on the Limerick side that remain as open heathland and blanket bog. The mountains include Seefin (528m, 1702ft), near Seefin on the northwest is Black Rock (516m, 1696ft) and 3 miles to the west is Carron Mountain (c.440m, 1469ft) on the boundary of Cork and Limerick. Immediately east of Seefin is Knockea (1311ft), east of which again is the detached mountain of Knockeennamroanta (1319ft). Between these is the pass of Barnaderg, now called Redchair, leading from the plain of Limerick to the plain of Cork. At the north side of the valley is the peak of Barnageeha (1196ft).

Distance from Cork: 55 minutes
