Low cloud had descended on the Kingdom on Sunday 21st June, so we decided to stay low. The forecast was for it to clear up later in the day. It didn't. It got foggy. Didn't stop me getting ridiculously sunburned though! We started from the junction at the village of Feohanagh by the pub called An Cuinne Q395 097 C as recommended by Kevin Corcoran in his 'Kerry Walks' book. We later discovered there is space to park further along the road nearer the start of the cliff path at Q389 100 A. The path is easy going and gently rises all the way to the remains of the tower at the top of Ballydavid Head. Apparently there are great views of the Blasket Islands and The Three Sisters. We will definitely be back to do this walk again on a clearer day, extending it over Beenmore and on towards Brandon Creek. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1004/comment/3881/
