Which is 22

And maybe Colin Murphy

Have said it to a few locals here too. While the boat can take up to 44, the owner said with backpacks and gear it might be better to limit it to 30 or so. So, if I rustle up another 4 or 5, we're getting near the limit.

I have gone ahead and booked the boat for the 8th September. It will be leaving at 10 and back at 6. It leaves from Ventry, not Dunquin so be careful. The owner guesstimated it at about 45 each, or maybe lower as that was on the basis of 20, but if its too rough to land on Inishtooskert and Inishnabro then the amount will be reduced because it becomes a more straightforward outing to the Great Blasket only. If this cannot be done, I guess people can do their own thing, plenty of mountains nearby.

I have received phone calls, emails, facebook messages and messages here, so at some stage in the next few weeks would ask that even those who have confirmed they will go reconfirm it HERE (so I have all the messages in one location) nearer the date and also tell me that they are aware of the no liability accepted issue and they have read and accept the disclaimer. And let me have your phone numbers in case there is need to cancel or confirm just before the day.

Oh and even if the day is dry I suspect waterproofs should be brought, any good wind at all and crossing the seas off the Kerry coast can be a fairly drenching experience. I presume noone on this site needs to be told no jeans or runners etc. etc.

Cupidstown Hill: Enhance this with a visit to Oughterard

Yes, perhaps this is not a very noteworthy hill. Cupidstown and Saggart Hill represent largely forest topped outliers of the Dublin/Wicklow range split from higher summits to the East by the N81. ...

Robber's Pass Hill: Minor heathery lump. Overcivilised and underwhelming.
Collaborative entry Last edit by: simon3 a week ago.
This oddly named hill is more a very minor heathery bump incorporated into the system of tracks laid out by the Wicklow Mountains National Park. It can be reached from any of the western car-parks...
