If you want to see the real Ireland, travel around this area. I go to this site on a regular basis. Make sure you take in Tullahought along the way.

I visited the Ahenny high crosses after visiting Cahir Castle. The directions were clear and it was easy to find. The graveyard is down a slope (no cows) and is fenced. The sun was shining, there was a slight breeze and the setting was beautiful....More

Definitely worth visiting. As the other review noted, the countryside around it is lovely. The drive from Callan to Windgap and on to Ahenny is really nice. The village itself is really unusual, it must have been built for workers in a local mine. Its...More
