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.

Peter Walker on Hungry Hill, 2008

Climbed Hungry Hill in mid-April on a 'changeable' day. Started from the crossroads on the more northerly of the two roads into Coomgira (787496 A), where a local assured me it was fine to park. The route continues west up the lane to its end, before bearing north (well-spaced waymarks) to the foot on Hungry Hill Waterfall. This has an impressive setting, but is slightly lacking as a cataract: lots of fall and not much water would be a fair description (and it had been raining, too). It's easy enough to dodge between outcrops up the spur opposite the waterfall, before bearing west again along the lip of the glen. The ground here is typically Beara: outcrops of rock and dodgily-coloured grass that screams "bog". Maintaining that course allows you to contour well south of Derryclancy and above Coomadayallig Lake. From here, as previously noted, bearing around to the right of the impressive frontage of Hungry Hill allows the summit ridge to be gained by substantial grassy ledges between the benches. I had sunshine, rain, vicious hail and snow: all good character-building stuff, as this is testing country in bad weather. And with discretion being the better part of valour, I returned the same way! The photo shows the rough ground crossed overlooking Coomgira.
