The village of Silvermines is located approximately 10km south of Nenagh in North Tipperary. It is a very attractive rural village where the community pride in its appearance is combined with the splendid backdrop of the Silvermines Mountains. Lead, zinc, copper, sulphide and barites have been mined in the area since Roman times. Silvermines is named after a former silver mining site, though active mining ceased here in 1993. To the south of the Silvermines Mountains is the highest peak in the mountains, Keeper Hill which rises to 695m and dominates the area. The village marks the end-point of the waymarked Slieve Felim Way which starts 44km away in Murroe, County Limerick. This loop explores the Coolyhorney area and overlaps with the Slieve Felim Way for a short period. This loop walk is part of the National Looped Walks and is marked using the standard purple National Looped Walk directional arrows.
