Nice little walk around the lake. This is perfect for a Sunday short walk in the zone. A bit too much road for me, and almost too easy. No much difference between the view from the car park and the vie from the"top".

Really nice trail. Today the weather was clear and sunny. I started the hike in the morning and it was pretty warm at the start. I recommande to wear layers to adapt temperature variation. It was kind a windy.
I also strongly recommend everybody to wear waterproof shoes! Luckily I didn't took my light shoes, even with nice and dry conditions the hills are pretty muddy and watery.
The views are fantastic and you can even go for a bigger trail from there!
It took me 4:30 in total including 1h rest on the top for lunch and sight seeing.
Very happy of the hike!

loved this route and great views the top

A 1 hour looped walk with great views of Lough Derg to the North and Keeper hill to the south. Very scenic with a testing incline on Coolahorney

Fantastic scenery and a variety of surfaces. Take note the map in the car park says this is a 3-4 hour walk. It will take a fast hiker 4.5 to 5 hours. Other reviews have corroborated this here and other websites. The route to Tountinna has a section of vertical steps requiring a good level of fitness. If you are unsure of capabilities of group or with kids I would do the millennium walk instead. You still get the view from the top at millennium cross. It was very well marked. The first section does pass through fields with livestock so if you are not into getting up close with them again take millennium cross. It’s worth the visit, many people would not expect to see beautiful views of lakes in In Tipperary.

one of my favourite places to go for an easy yet enjoyable peaceful walk. When the Rhodedendron are in bloom it's stunning. Ample parking, picnic tables, toilets & kids play are also.

Very good

Beautiful area but sadly the first half of the route (if going clockwise) is interrupted by substantial logging and clearcuts. Very sad to see poor logging methods being used (cutting right down to the creek/river beds leaving no protective barrier). The second half of the trail was really lovely.

I think it was amazing

The wonderful place the views even better, today the snow was in the belt just Super

was amazing experience!

rain was forecasted for early morning so I decided to leave at 1. headed off through the woods, the road splits with signposts both way, I swung back to the right and continued until I met the open scrub land. crossed over the fence and headed off up the spur of Slieve. tough ascent, most of the elevation gained is getting up here. stopped 3/4 times to catch my breath and kicked on again. I tried to keep to the left side of this spur so I would get some shelter from the winds coming in from the west. you should see a cairn near the top. crush will be directly to you're left at this point. continue along and you'll catch a path which after a few hundred metres you'll see a wall to your right. great place to get some shelter if needed for a few minutes. once you get along this wall it's a gentle pull up compared to what you've come from. be careful not to go to far to the left there is a nice drop down to the lake curragh. once up the top I had a quick coffee and a little stop for a few snaps. met two guys up there who had travelled from the opposite direction, since the weather was good I pushed on to galtybeg. if the weather was bad I would defo head back down the way I came. after descending down galtybeg and veering off to the left before cush towards the forest. I had to cross one or two little streams before I met a little steps over a fence back into the forest. to backtrack a little, after descending galtybeg I would be warn ppl to be very careful, I thought it was very difficult. it made me glad I choose my initial route and if I was to it again I would go up and come back the way I came, i just feel that a simple slip and you could do a ankle EASY!! I slipped on my bum and I slid at least 10 feet and the mountain was very dry today. it would be a nightmare to try come down when the weather closes in or if it rain. good hike on the whole with of course great views of Tipp cork waterford and limerick. back to the car at clydagh bridge by 5.30. 2 up and 2 and half back but that's taking in a traverse over to galtybeg!

Doll face was used

This is not a moderate trail. The hiking is intense with probably 1 to 2 miles of flat terrain. Pack plenty of water for the 5 hour trek and wear good hiking boots. A couple of sandwiches and etc. is also a good idea. The payoff is breathtaking vistas of emerald pastures and blue lakes. . Also enjoyed mingling with the cows and horses along the way. Beware of electric fences on the first part of the hike. And if one enjoys blackberries, there wee an abundance along the route. I give this a thumbs up and 5 Stars.

Great trail on the rocky road. After that it’s all big but luckily it wasn’t too wet due to the recent heatwave / drought

Incredible views of Lough Derg from the top. Steep hike up Tountinna but with the option of steps now in the places where previously it would have been most difficult.

Panoramic views from the top, with waterfalls & occasional deer to view on the way up. Straightforward to cut it to a less intense approx 9km circular loop by cutting out the final trek to the top if the gradient gets too steep (just continue past the left turn that brings you towards the summit and you'll loop back to your starting point).

Really beautiful place to spend most of the day.

Nice walk up, great views at the top. The signage could be much better getting there. Very hard to find without gps. Can imagine how pretty it would be if it had just rained because there are several water falls along the trek.
