The East Munster Way is a 75 km point-to-point route starting in Carrick-on-Suir Urban, County Tipperary, Ireland and ending in the village of Clogheen, Ireland. The trail follows the River Suir, passing the ruins of a medieval castle on its banks before crossing into County Waterford and into the valley of the Comeragh Mountains. With a total elevation gain of 4715 ft, the route flanks these impressive mountains, with spectacular views as it crosses into the foothills of the Knockmealdown Mountains and then descends into Clogheen. Despite it being a National Waymarked Trail, hikers should expect to self-navigate as there have been some issues with the Waymarking.
Typically, the trail takes 4 days to complete, the terrain is varied, with a good portion of road walking, forest tracks and river towpaths.
