Keeper Hill is the highest peak in the Shannon Region and offers majestic views of the surrounding countryside. Keeper Hill is situated in the Slieve Felim mountain range in North Tipperary and is just 15km east of Limerick City. The Gaelic name for the hill means the mountain of guarding! Keeper Hill is the highest mountain in the Shannon area and the 117th highest in Ireland. The 'hill' is wrapped in a forestry area of 3,300 hectares. The 300 hectare summit is designated as a National Heritage Area, considered important for the habitats present or species of plants and animals whose habitat needs protection. This loop overlaps with a short section of the Slieve Felim Way - a 44km way-marked route which travels from Murroe in County Limerick to Silvermines in County Tipperary. En-route it passes through the small but pleasant village of Toor and onward across the shoulder of Keeper Hill. While the loop (marked with purple arrows) explores the lower shoulders of Keeper Hill, the 'hardy' walker will enjoy incorporating the 'trek' to the summit (the red arrows).
