Short Summary created by Harry Goodman,  23 Jan 2014
Parking is available at F560042 A at Keem Strand. Follow a rough track W up the hillside and then SSE to gain the cliff edge on Moyteoge Head around F557038 B. Turn off right and go NW along the rough but distinct track, which parallels but lies back from the edge, to F545048 C. The top of Benmore lies about 100 metres SE up the grassy slope and provides fine views SE to Clare Island and W to Achil Head. Care is needed at the cliff edge. Given it's location it is most likely that this hill will be included in a walk out to Achill Head or on an approach to climb the greater tops of Croaghan SW Top and Croaghan. Descend by way of ascent or drop down E and follow the river SE back to the start. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1110/comment/15354/
West of Keem

The walk along the cliff top taking in Benmore and out to the north west end is well worth doing, even if you don't go out on the Achill head ridge or take on the very steep climb up to Croghaun SW. The views are amazing, a good time to do it might be a fine summer evening when the sun shines in Croghaun's cliffs. A real feeling of being at the worlds end Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1110/comment/18589/
