The Galtee Mountains or Galty Mountains (Irish: Na Gaibhlte or Sléibhte na gCoillte) are a mountain range in Munster, located in Ireland’s Golden Vale across parts of counties Limerick, South Tipperary and Cork. The name “Galtee” is thought to be a corruption of the Irish “Sléibhte na gCoillte” – “Mountains of the Forests” in English, however this Irish name has fallen out of use. The Galtees are Ireland’s highest inland mountain range, taking the form of a high ridge which rises up almost sheer from the surrounding plain. The highest peak in Galtymore which rises to 917 m (3,009 ft).
