Get active in Ballyhoura

One of the great accommodation choices for a three day outdoor and active break around Ballhoura is Ballyhoura Mountain Lodges. There are nine lodges - each sleeping up to six people - scattered around this rural oasis with plenty of trees and greenery.

Spend Day 1 at Ballyhass Adventure Playground where you can take on everything from archery to axe throwing to the more gentle arts of throwing yourself around an inflatable water park, kayaking or supping. Give yourself a bit of a break and eat at the on-site cafe.

Get on your bike on Day 2 and head into the trails around Ballyhoura Mountains. Hire bikes and tailor your treks with help from Ballyhoura Trailriders to tackle anything from the 6km loops to a more demanding 50km. If you’re looking for a challenge, this could be it!

There’s still loads more to see around Ballyhoura, so we suggest downloading the Ballyhoura Walking app on Day 3 to pick one of 11 walks, ranging in ability and views. There are some fabulous vistas around this area so take your time and drink it in.

You’ll have earned your food, so treat yourselves to a good substantial meal at the charming Molly’s in Kilfinane.
