The Devils Bit is a hidden Gem in Tipperary. Coming from the hustle and bustle of London life, when I go there I love the solitude during week days of the place. On a clear day you can see for miles. I'm not a huge fan of heights , so I have never made it up to the cross itself.... More

Snap decision at 3pm - finish work and go there! Well sign-posted (free!) car park, clear map notice board and clear marking of route around the summit. I hadn't appreciated that there's no actual path up to the cross - you have to undertake a noticeable scramble up rocks to get up and to get down again. I was lucky... More

From the ample car park make your way up through the stile and follow your nose to the next stile at the top of the hill, from there proceed up the hill to the hill-fort, I understand this is known as Cardens Folly(if only they would rebuild the staircase to the top it would make a wonderful attraction as the...

Easily seen from afar, we first heard about the story of Devils bit on tour of Cashel Rock, path was too steep and uneven for me to walk but my daughter managed and the views from the top are stunning. Picnic tables in car park area though provided ample place to wait for her return and the views even from... More

Even if you don't go on the entire looped walk, you can stop in a few lower spots and still get a great view of the surrounding countryside. There's a couple of picnic tables and anyone with an average level of fitness should be fine to go up to the top, which is really worth it especially on a clear... More

It's an awkward enough place to find, but it is signposted from there's a car park at the bottom, then an hours walking up a clearly marked track to the top. The walk up is quote steep, but easy.

This place can be seen from almost everywhere in Tipperary and on a clear day you can see the River Shannon. The views are stunning and although the climb is somewhat tiring at least the return is all the easier.
