All Smiles on Mullaghanattin Summit

Mullaghanattin & Ballaghbeama Gap Guided Hike

This is a 7km strenuous 4 hour round trip hike to the summit of Mullaghanattin near Ballaghbeama Gap and Sneem on the Ring of Kerry. Mullaghanattin in the Dunkerron Mountains, at 773m high, offers a tough but rewarding challenge to the regular hillwalker with good fitness. Immediately from the start of this walk, we’re treated to stunning views which only get better the higher we climb. This walk is entirely off-trail and requires suitable walking clothing and good waterproof boots. I recommend plenty of fluids, sufficient food and preferably a walking pole, even two. Extended periods of ascent require experience of walking in this type of moorland terrain.

Dunkerron Walking Holiday

Coomanassig – Sneem Waterfall & Eagles Lake Guided Walk

On this 6 km moderately difficult 2.5 hr experience, we’ll explore the wild and rugged lower slopes of the Dunkerron Mountain as we make our way to Coomanassig waterfall and Eagles Lake. This walk combines stone paths and unmarked trails across open moorland. Some extended periods of gradual ascent require a reasonable level of walking fitness. Suitable clothing and footwear a prerequisite.
