Elizabeth and Judy Alderton are keen hill walkers and have lived at Bleantis for over 20 years. We moved from England to Ireland in 1996 because we wanted a freer life style, beautiful scenery and a relaxed pace of life. We also knew that the people of Ireland still set great store by the ability to sing a song, dance a set, recite a story, or play an instrument, and that really appealed to us. And not for one moment have we been disappointed! Bleantis Mountain is our own private playground since you will never see other walkers there - it's not on the tourist maps! You can walk directly from the cottage up a tiny lane onto our mountain. There are no 'official routes in the Comeraghs, (you choose your own!) but we can give you very specific guidance on the what,where and how, relating to walking in the mountains. We will also lend you detailed maps of the area for your stay. We have trained our (very quiet,obedient but fun!) very friendly black labradors to find people who are missing, particularly the elderly and children. You can have as much, or as little, interaction with the dogs as you choose. They won't bother you in any way.
Bleantis Mountain Cottage is located on a small bohereen (or lane) which leads directly onto Bleantasour Mountain (part of the Monavullagh range) just 1 km away. On Bleantasour mountain are panoramic views of the Knockmealdown mountains to the west, the Galtee mountains to the north, and the Comeragh mountains to the east. From here you can either roam across the Monavullagh mountains themselves or trek across the 'tops' to the famous Nire Valley or onto the craggy Comeragh mountain range. This particular area of County Waterford is called the Deise (pronounced Day-shur). Its inhabitants are particularly warm, generous, tolerant and laid back and the local harbour town of Dungarvan has a very relaxed and happy atmosphere where complete strangers will greet you on the street. Additionally, the Ring peninsula on Dungarvan bay is one of the 6 Gaeltacht locations in Ireland, where Irish is spoken as the first language. So it is quite common to hear Irish being spoken in and around Dungarvan So all in all we reckon that you've stumbled on one of the best kept secrets of Ireland - the Deise, with its stunning coastline and mountains ,rivers, valleys, lochs, music and song.
