Hungry Hill is the title of a novel by Daphne du Maurier based on the story of the family of her friend, Christopher Puxley, whose family acquired Dunboy Castle and its lands after the defeat of Donal Cam O'Sullivan Beare. The copper mines located on the hill in the novel are in reality further west near Allihies. The second element of the Irish name, Cnoc Daod, has long been regarded as obscure, but it is probably simply a dialectal variant of déad meaning ‘tooth’, ‘jaw’ or ‘set of teeth’. A family living at the foot of the hill are known locally as the Bun Daods.   Hungry Hill is the highest mountain in the Caha Mountains area and the 135th highest in Ireland. Hungry Hill is the second most southerly summit in the Caha Mountains area. Hungry Hill is the third highest point in county Cork.

This was the first time we've gone hill walking, and we hadn't exactly been planning on it, but the weather was great and we couldn't resist the challenge. We started from the south side, on the road from Glengarrif to Castletownbere. About 4 miles after Adrigole police station there is a track on the right hand side of the road where we parked. You can take this track further up the hill if you want. It seemed rough but drivable. We headed in a generally north-westerly direction. It started out a bit scrambly and rough, 3 or 4 fences to climb over, but nothing too difficult ,and passed some walking track markers no. 28-31. After a while it evened out to a gentle slope, beautiful views of the bay behind us - enjoy this bit and then prepare for the pretty steep incline ahead! It gets a good bit steeper, and soon enough you're climbing. Once we got to this point we were closer to the west side of the hill and from here we pretty much headed directly up to the summit, following a dry river bed every now and then. After 1 3/4 hours we reached the top, but were unfortunately surrounded by cloud..... Well worth it though. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/130/comment/1175/
