The Galty Mountains (also spelt Galtee) are within a 10 minute drive from Cahir. At 919m (3015 feet) Galtymore is the highest inland peak in Ireland (i.e. not in a coastal range) and is very popular among hill walkers. It has a distinctive double summit and is very steep on the north side. This peak is a good day’s climb, especialy if you take in its smaller neighbour Galtybeg.
