Ireland’s highest mountain, Carrauntoohill standing tall at 1,038m, is a challenging but rewarding ascent offering spectacular views of the Iveragh and Dingle peninsulas, the Killarney Valley and as far as the Galtees and the Clare coastline.
Carrauntoohill cradles three bowl-shaped valleys, each housing their own lake; to the South is Curragh More, to the East you will find Hag’s Glen and to the West is Coomloughra.
A magnificent a steel cross standing at 5 metres was erected in 1976 and is still standing today to meet you as you reach the summit.
