Mweelrea, Ben Bury, Ben Lugmore...
Heading to Westport for a few days next week. Will probably be allowed one full day climbing, and no more! Would like to get Mweelrea done, and maybe bag a few more in the area, like Ben Bury and Ben Lugmore. Is getting all of these in in one day feasible - 8 to 9 hours would probably be my limit? Is there much of an ascent and descent between them - it seems from the map that Mweelrea is a bit 'distinct' from the other. What distances are involved? Is it best done east to west or vice versa? Is a circuit possible? Any paticular tips on the area - presume the Harveys Superwalker for Connemara covers these mountains and is available in shops around there?

I have read the reviews of Mweelrea itself by Al and David Bourke which seem most helpful, as they describe taking it in as part of a circuit with the other mountains I mention above. This also seems to be braodly what I might aim for...

Similar to the other contributors, this is not a single summit day out. I did it after Colly. It's an hour or so with a coffee break. Start at the Ballaghasheen pass (spectacular drive in & out) a...

I am sure like many of you, especially simoburn, that the addition of the Arderin Begs while technically needed, added loads more summits to climb. This one is, well, a real hard sell. I was tryin...
