A Coastal view worth visiting for.
Short Summary created by jackill,  21 Aug 2014
Park at Q38538 10303 A, end of a cul de sac, with room to park 2 cars without obstructing access to nearby houses. Go west intially, then north, then north-east. In places the going is over rough dwarf furze, so long trousers are recommended.
There are fine views to SW of the Three Sisters, nearby Ballydavid head and to the north the end of the Brandon ridge.
It is possible to walk SW towards Ballydavid along one of the most spectacular cliff edges in Ireland. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1231/comment/15475/

Airy walking at its best
by eamonoc  21 Aug 2014
Climbed Beenmore 19/8/2014. Started from Q39776 10554 B. Was able to park up a small side road beside a disused farm shed. room for one or maybe two cars, followed good track around the back of a farm yard through two gates and uphill to a col between Ballydavid Head and Beenmore, headed up Ballydavid Head and then back to the col and up heather covered slopes to Beenmore, always staying close to the cliff edge fantastic airy walking with brilliant views in all directions. Descended Beenmore on to another track spotted from higher up this brought me back onto the road at Q 40169 10818 C. Then it was a short walk westward along the road to starting point.
