The area has been described as "a haven of beauty and tranquillity", where the pace of life is slow, offering the discerning holidaymaker the chance to re-discover quality living, like it used to be, from the people of the Ballyhoura themselves. Two mountain ranges, the Ballyhoura's and the Galtee's, offer walkers a unique experience to explore the Irish countryside at its best. With over 1,500km of off-road marked trails, the area offers much in the way of walks, from leisurely strolls through peaceful pastureland or forest tracks, to the Ballyhoura way, a 90km long-distance walk which traverses the area from east to west.
