Knocknadobar is a hill of pilgrimage. The stations of the cross were erected by Canon Brosnan in 1855. One of the wells referred to in the name is St. Fursey's Well, located at the foot of the mountain, near the start of the pilgrimage route to the summit. It is visited for a cure for eye complaints. See Máire MacNeill, 'The Festival of Lughnasa' (pp. 137-39) for details of the mountain pilgrimage.   Knocknadobar is the highest mountain in the Iveragh NW area and the 128th highest in Ireland.

Knocknadober, nestling on the very west of the Iveragh Peninsula offers the possibility of some very pleasant walking plus magnificent views (weather permitting). One approach is to follow the N70, cross Darby's Bridge and start from the coast road at approx. V525 875 I. There is a fairly gentle ascent up the valley to the Glendalough Lakes then veering westwards to the ridge for Knocknadober. Being a committed "500M bagger " a quick twirl to include Knocknadober North Top (point 602) was included before ascending Knocknadober itself. Somewhat unexpectedly, there was a steep descent from Knocknadober to the ridge leading to Kells Mountain (must read the map more carefully in future) which Seán O'Suilleabháin describes as an "arête" in his book "Walk Guide - Southwest of Ireland". Whatever the description, reasonable care is required in making the descent but it is well worth the effort as it affords spectacular views of the Glendalough Lakes and the Dingle Peninsula beyond.
