Sean Kelly has made this route rightly famous. It is basically a circuit of the lovely Comeragh Mountains, keeping them on your left at all times and without actually entering mountain terrain. It takes in Carrick-on-Suir, passes the tranquil setting of Glencomeragh House, skirts Clonmel, continues via Kilcomma, the picturesque village of Ballymacarbry, through Colligan Wood and past the Master McGrath monument before eventually returning to the trailhead.
