The Slieve Bloom Mountains are among the most unspoilt and least explored areas in Ireland and a hill walker’s paradise. Much of the higher reaches of the Slieve Bloom Mountains have been designated as Environmentally Protected areas and are made up of blanket bog of a type which is unique in Ireland. There is a wide variety of family friendly walks, eco trails, short and long loops, forest paths and the Slieve Bloom way.
