About the area: Originally built by a colony of Palatine settlers, the village of Glenosheen is located below the Ballyhoura Mountains and is just two miles from the village of Ardpatrick – named after Ireland’s patron saint. St. Patrick himself is reputed to have built a church on the hill that overlooks the village – the remnants of which still exist today. The market town of Kilfannane is also close by and boasts the title of the highest town in County Limerick as well as an excellent outdoor education centre for school, youth and adult groups, offering a wide range of adventure sports and courses. These include canoeing, rock climbing, hill walking, horse riding and abseiling, giving visitors a wide range to choose from.
