Comeragh Mountain Walks


Comeragh Mountains
From Dungarvan to Clonmel
Republic of Ireland

This easy to access mountain range offers wonderful vistas across the county and down to the sea. Described by some as Ireland’s best kept secret, the Comeraghs offer everything from a dramatic waterfall down a cliff face to the mystery of the ‘magic road’ which runs through the gap of the range.

These waymarked walks within the open countryside and uplands of the Comeragh Mountains include linear walks and Failte Ireland National Looped walking trails. The waymarked trails provide the walker with a choice of two to four and a half hour walks of a moderate or strenuous level of difficulty and an opportunity to experience Waterford’s Natural Heritage of the Comeragh Mountains in a sustainable manner.

These mountains give visitors plenty to take in – from the dramatic scenery of the Nire valley to the spectacular Coomshingaun corrie lake. From delightful villages like Kilbrien and Rathgormack to the unique ecosystem of the moorland, the Comeragh Mountains have it all. The wonderful Mahon Falls is a must but everyone can find their own bit of heaven in the Comeraghs.

The choice is infinite for walkers: climbing Knocksheegowna and walking along Knockanafrinn ridge, wandering through quiet forests, discovering trails where it appears no one has walked for thousands of years – or staying on the beaten path and ambling along signposted looped walks…

Our mountain trails are on mountain land. Although the routes are waymarked, in many places there is no path and the terrain underfoot is rugged, including sections of steep and boggy ground.
