The Slieve Felim Way is a long-distance trail through the Slieve Felim Mountains, running through two counties: Limerick and Tipperary. It is 27 miles long beginning in Murroe, County Limerick and ending in Silvermines, County Tipperary. The walk is typically completed in two days.[1]

The route is designated as a 'National Waymarked Trail' by the National Trails Office and is managed by Shannon Development and Coillte.[2]

The route

The trail begins in the village of Murroe and follows the road past Glenstal Abbey before crossing forestry along the slopes of the Slieve Felim Mountains to reach the village of Toor.[3] From Toor, the Way crosses the flanks of Keeper Hill in the Silvermine Mountains before following the road into Silvermines village.[4]

A review of the National Waymarked Trails in 2010 found multiday and day usage of the trail to be low and recommended a review and strengthening of the trail management structures.[2]
