The Clare Glens are a wooded area with a path up the red sandstone gorge separated by the banks of the Clare river, which separates Counties Tipperary and Limerick, Ireland. It is located approximately 4km from Newport, County Tipperary, approximately 5km from Murroe on the R506 road.
There are two carparks located near to the entrance for walkers. There is also a small children's play area and picnic area and toilet facilities at the smaller carpark.
There is a signposted trail consisting of a walkway on both banks of the river with views and swimming locations. This includes an opening below a waterfall known as "The Big Eas".
The river is used as a kayaking venue, and canoeists usually enter the Clare river at the top carpark by Ashroe and kayak down the waterfalls and rapids. On the 4 January 2014 emergency services including a helicopter were dispatched to rescue a canoeist from the Clare River 
In the late 1990s the Limerick path of the Clare Glens was widened and levelled to allow emergency vehicles access to the two mile long walk.
The Clare Glens were hit during storm Darwin on the 12 February 2014, which hurricane gusts passed through Limerick, hundreds of trees were knocked and the paths were impassable.
