The Comeragh Mountains
The Comeraghs are located just 10km from Carrick-on-Suir and there is hardly a week in the year without mountaineers, climbers and hill walkers of some description out enjoying them. They are one of the finest ranges in the country and have a great mix of mountain features.
There's the long and precipitous Knockanaffrin Ridge, the shadowy depths and glacial amphitheatre of Lough Coumshingaun, the magnificent plateau, the falls in Coum Mahon, the tremendous variety of the Nire Valley as well as the wealth of flora and fauna. The Comeraghs are well covered in the Ordnance Survey of Ireland's Discovery Series No.75 Map and a number of good walking routes are described in "East and South".
