Home for a Bagger?
Interesting one. Kenmare is pretty well placed. If I walk about 500 metres up the road from my house I can see the Reeks, Dunkerrons, Cahas, Shehy/Knockboys and Mangertons, and the last range obscures the Purple Mountains which are also pretty close. All 100 locals were drawn from them, and in many cases the very nearest of those ranges - didn't have to go too far back the Cahas or Dunkerrons and still have a few of the Shehy/Knockboys to do. Can also just about see the Mishkish range at the end of the Beara Peninsula. Great walking country alright, but for some reason poor for IMRA/NIMRA mountain runs - apart from Carrauntoohil and Mangerton - that seems to be mostly Wicklow and Mournes based.

There is a drawback mind you. The presence of a lot of summits here...and the fact that the entire area in turn is a bit remote from some of the great ranges in the country, means the spectrum of summits bagged is quite limited. I have yet to set foot on the Mournes or Sperrins...in fact any summit in Ulster, pretty much anything in Connemara apart from Mweelrea, pretty much anything in Leinster apart from Lug etc. etc. So when people start talking about this mountain or that, unless they're in South or West Kerry or West Cork I'm in trouble. I suspect other baggers would think nothing of driving a few hours and getting in a new range and so seeing far more of the country then me, whereas I have a different mindset, the cost of fuel, the effort etc. means I just go up the same ones again and again a lot.
