Oddly enough, despite the adjective beag ('small'), it is actually higher than Slieve Meelmore, so perhaps it is a question of bulk rather than height.   Slieve Meelbeg is the 111th highest summit in Ireland.

tsunami on Slieve Meelbeg, 2005

There's nothing terribly fantastic about Meelbeg. It doesn't have the brilliant rock formations which can be seen on Bearnagh or Binnian. It isn't just as nicely placed as its brother Meelmore, nor is it quite as challenging a climb. It is best enjoyed as part of longer walk around the wall, in a similar vein to Slievenaglogh or Slieve Corragh - stop for two minutes on top to catch your breath and take a couple of photos and quickly move along to the next one. There are three main approaches to consider, each of which offer some degree of variation so as not to get bored! 1) Follow the Ott track to the shoulder between Carn and Slieve Loughshannagh, then as usual follow the wall across Slieve Loughshannagh and onto Meelbeg. 2) From the picnic site on Trassey Road, follow the rough pathway halfway up the valley between Meelbeg and Meelmore and then follow the river ontowards the wall on the shoulder between the two - waych your footing here, as the path runs out the ground gets rather uneven and at times boggy. 3) Everyones favorite - The Trassey Track from Meelmore Lodge, to the col between Bearnagh and Meelmore at Pollaphuca and then decide whether or not to tackle Meelmore first or contour around to the wall at the same point as route two. The photo shows the nice view of Bearnagh and Donard from Meelbegs summit. The views are rewarding, make no mistake, its just that theres nothing of any character to capture the imagination when you're here - this view shows clearly why you should move quickly onwards to Bearnagh and beyond!
