Trip to Beara...
Based in Kenmare, so have done all the Cahas. Not sure I'll be able to join you though, between work and mobility - doing the Wicklow Way Ultra on the 22nd so I expect to be stiff and sore for a few days! If you're out on the hills on Sat 29th might be able to get out there at that stage.

Anyway, my tips would be...

1. Hungry Hill is a must, beautiful, rugged, great views. My favourite ascent is the SW Ridge, not boring but not too exposed either. If you have time, think of a circuit with Maulin but it will be a good few hours.

2. Don't miss out on the Mishkish range. Some wonderful views over Allihies and the Kenmare Bay. And do get out to Dursey island, one summit but unique with it's cable car access and wonderful peace and quiet.

3. Further east, the Cummeengeera Circuit (the "Pocket") circling above the cave where the double murderer "Rabach" Sullivan hid out, is one of the best high level walks around. It's a day's outing. Pretty sure Simon and others have put up some great photos and notes of the various summits along the route. Here is the tale of the Rabach himself...

4. Sugarloaf is also a lovely area. Not the easiest to get to, particularly if approaching from the Barley Lake side.

5. Don't waste too much time on Knockboy, it may be the county high point but it is one of the least spectacular walks in Beara. It's just an hour or so of a walk across a bog from the Priest's Leap. Nice views on a clear day. The best bit around there are the cliffs to the north of Caoinkeen, they are dramatic.
