    Favorite thing: None of the mountains in the Knockmealdowns are too challenging but there are many distinct peaks which can be combined into a good walk.

    The peaks above 400 metres are (in descending order of height):
    Knockmealdown (794 m)
    Knockshane (768 m)
    Knocknafallia (668 m)
    Sugarloaf Hill (663 m)
    Knocknagnauv (655 m)
    Knockshanahullion (652 m)
    Knocknalougha (630 m)
    Knockmeal (560 m)
    Crohan West (521 m)
    Farbreaga (518 m)
    Knocknanask (486)
    Knocknasculloge (432)
    Broemountain (429)

    We hiked for 8.5 hours and our circular hike, which started and ended at the Vee, included six of these summits. We also walked along the East Munster Way and the Tipperary Heritage Way for 10 km, while the total distance of the hike was 21 km. From the time we started the hike we only saw two people all day - right towards the end on the Tipperary Heritage Way.

    Clogheen

    Favorite thing: Clogheen is the nearest village to the Knockmealdown Mountains. In the village there are a couple of pubs, a Spar supermarket and a small grocery store but not a lot more. I didn’t see any restaurants or take-aways, so if you fancy a meal Clonmel or Cahir are the nearest towns. We returned from our hike one evening just in time to buy picnic food before Spar closed - had we been 10 minutes later we would have had to go to Cahir.
