Dessie1 - does it HAVE to be Coomloughra?
I mean, if you have two cars and don't have to do a circuit, and you have 8 hours of walking time you could take in a good bit more of the Eastern Reeks (which imho are far superior to Knockbrinnea) - if you are fit and want to bag a lot of peaks. Could think about maybe ascending via Beenkeragh and going to Carrauntoohil and on to Caher/Caher East, and then on the return leg at the col between Caher and Carrauntoohil make a beeline for the top of the Devils Ladder and going on to Cnoc na Toinne, Cnoc an Chuillinn, Maolan Bui and even Knocknapeasta, and retracing just ten minutes then and coming down the Bone. The climb from the Devil's Ladder back to Carrauntoohil would be a slog, whereas once you get on the Eastern Reeks you could bag a load in quick succession and its a wonderful walk. You would even get to see the start of the Big Gun Ridge, which if you are feeling very adventurous you can go for or save to take in on a longer day out.

Visited in 2014. There's a sandy beach and a solid pier with slipway and a picnic table facing the mainland. The road from the pier all the way thru the village is a robust concrete one, but it's ...

Now living furth of Scotland and getting to know the Irish hills. If you come across a Scottish hill Walker with dodgy knees and walking sedately, stop and say hello.

Surprisingly Donegal islands have a very good mobile internet reception, sometimes better than in an office in Dublin.

I did kayak to the island in 2014. There is a slipway facing the mainland. Lot's of ruined houses. Walking is decent as the island is flat but in places ground is uneven and overgrown, there are o...
