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.

Climbed Hungry hill on June 10th 2011 - Me and my wife were all alone on this beautiful panoramic mountain, even on this sunny and warm day. As a Belgian mountaineer, I found a lot of information on this website so I concern it as my duty to share my experiences during our 15 day Ireland round-trip on which we climbed several summits all over south and west Ireland.

Lewvalton's description is the most accurate when you are attempting to climb the SW ridge.
In addition I would like to add following comments :
- Taking the r-hand turn off the R572 and driving up the small road nearly to the gate closing off the road some 500 m before Loch Park is an adventure on its own. The road is very small and there are nearly no crossing opportunities. Be careful.
- At loch park one could climb slightly to the right up to the notch, but it is highly advisable also to climb the initial section. To do so, just walk around Loch Park and walk some 200 meter further down the road leaving the rock at your r-hand side. Beware not to start climbing too early since the start section could be quite hard.
- When leaving the ridge, the platform towards the huge cairn at point 667m is quite peaty, but was dry on the day we climbed.
- Going downhill on the south face is like walking in a labyrinth of rocks. One should go straight down south at the point were the SW ridge meets the grassy platform. Continue going down until you meet the "green highway" down to the west and leading towards Loch Park. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/130/comment/6459/
