Hillwalking to the Stone Circle on Kilmacoliver Hill on the Kilkenny and Tipperary Border

Went yesterday to Kilmacoliver Hill, on the Kilkenny, Tipperary border to climb the hill and visit the ancient stone circle and burial chamber up there.
There’s a looped walk from the village of Tullahought that is featured at (which includes GPS info).
Fantastic views from up there and the hike is suitable for older children – ours are 11 and 13 and they enjoyed it. The walk goes back through a deciduous woodland which is also lovely. Recommended to burn off the Full Irish Breakfasts!
