Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Ahenny is a bit off the beaten track and is a tiny hamlet . The local people must take great pride of the way the little graveyard where the crosses are is so well kept . There are wild flowers planted around it and the path from the road is grass but kept short .The ground in the graveyard is a bit uneven, be careful.
The crosses are beautiful but getting eroded by the weather . One of the “ wheels “ or circles on one of the crosses is broken . The carvings are intricate and must have been very hard to do with hand tools at the time they were created.
The setting is serene.
We discovered that our phones hadn’t a signal there and only for a local farmer we would have got lost going back to Carrick on Suir .

I visited the Ahenny high crosses after visiting Cahir Castle. The directions were clear and it was easy to find.
The graveyard is down a slope (no cows) and is fenced. The sun was shining, there was a slight breeze and the setting was beautiful.
It is a small graveyard. The crosses are simple, but beautifully carved. There was such a sense of peace that I was in awe. I'm very glad I made the effort to visit the Ahenny high crosses.

Definitely worth visiting.

As the other review noted, the countryside around it is lovely. The drive from Callan to Windgap and on to Ahenny is really nice. The village itself is really unusual, it must have been built for workers in a local mine. Its worth walking around the village, the houses are pretty and a lot of them seem to have vintage tractors in the garden.

The High Towers are hugely impressive given (i) their age (ii) that they are in quite an exposed place and would get a lot of severe weather and (iii) there is barely any mention of them in guide books (even at the site itself, there is hardly any information about them)....Note that the high crosses are located in a graveyard, which you walk across a field to reach.

There is a pub near by called Delaney's, it looks like a nice place but was closed the day I was there.

Also, about five miles away Burnchurch Castle is very interesting.

An idealic location to take in the wonders of mythical Irish history and of course beauty.One of the most beautiul, unspolit and peaceful parts of Irish landscape that I stumbled apon while on route to the south of Irealnd.The view caught my eye from the road traveling from the small village of Grangmockler.Such a view,we had to interrupt our journey on to the town of Cashel to see where this rural landscape would lead us..well worth the diversion.Unspolit peace and quiet and beauty.Ahenny Village with the Ahenny hIgh Crosses.5 stars.

Finding out the Irish side of me started in Tipperary this was a must stop for me. The surrounding area is wonderful for photo opp's. Some of my kin are burried here. It is a must stop if you go to Tipperary!. I like taking photo's of graves stones....many design colors can be found here!

Drove small road to find this. Was not impressed. Looks like every graveyard I saw already. The churches around here are filled with the same Celtic crosses. If you have a choice to see this or a Castle pick the Castle. To far off the path wasted too much time.

The high crosses are amazing in many ways: their age, the workmanship and dedication to their formation, the symbolism decorating each one, and how they have stood the test of time and weathering.

If any where near these Crosses are well worth a visit, you have to walk through a field but worth it. It's a lovely graveyard but some of the older gravestones have been taken away it does rather spoil the overall feel.

We stopped here today. It is a little hard to find but well worth the effort. The grave yard is small and there are only two large Celtic Cross gravestones tucked among other very old gravestones that seemed to go back to the late 1700's/early 1800's.

Once you find it, this is a 15 minute stop, max, but very interesting and worthwhile nonetheless.
