East Munster Way, Carrick-on-suir - Clogheen, 75 km, 3 days
The East Munster Way starts where the South Leinster Way ends: Carrick-on-Suir. The first leg of this three day walk runs along the banks of River Suir, with park like views, forests and land houses. Then it climbs into the forests of the Comeragh Mountains. Next it crosses a pleasant pastoral countryside. The last leg follows the northern slopes of the Knockmealdown Mountains.
The path is varied and gives you the opportunity to get acquainted with a more friendly side of the Irish countryside including old towns, but there are some issues on the quality of the trail and the choice of the traject.
The path is part of both the E8 and the Irish Coast to Coast Walk. It takes over from the Blackwater Way in Clogheen, and hands over to the South Leinster Way in the town of Carrick-on-Suir.

I plan to walk the East Munster Way with 2 friends.
This would be the first time we travel like this.
We would walk this in 3 days from Clogheen to Carrick-on-Suir.
Does anybody have a suggestion where we could sleep between Clogheen and Clonmel ?
Because I don't find a camping there, I consider to put up our tent in the free nature.
Is it ordinary to put up a tent in the free nature? Or do I better search for another solution?
Thanks in advance
