The Owenglin Horseshoe
Hi CaptainVertigo, better off ascending Bengower from Benbreen rather than the other way around on your first go or if its misty. It's just a bit of a scramble in places, and picking your way along rock ledges. There's a bit of a path in places. The descent of Benbreen is a steep scree slope (ideal for a scree run). A good guidebook in Paddy Dillion's Connemara. I've done the Owenglin horseshoe in its entirety twice, so if you need any more pointers, just give me a buzz.

Knocknarea: Lots of interest
Aidy a day ago.
Walked up from the car park to the east. As others have said, brilliant views for a very short, easy walk, and the added interest of the huge burial cairn on the summit. Also saw a few other inter...

Croaghconnellagh: Tough but impressive top
Colin Murphy a day ago.
There's no easy way up this hill as it is pretty isolated from everything around it in terms of elevation and pretty much every side of it is steep. In fact some approaches are precipitous. I had ...
