The Comeragh Mountains boast some of the finest examples of corrie lakes in Europe, and they even give the range its name - the word Comeragh comes from Coumarach which means ‘full of hollows, glacial in origin’. In the centre of the town stands the majestic Cahir Castle. This is best preserved medieval castles in Ireland and contains one of the very few working monument, it has been open to the public since 1971 and is a lovely place to visit.
