The summit of Galtymore is marked as Dawson's Table. Captain Dawson was a landowner in this area (Tipperary Directory 1889). Cf. Percy's Table on Lugnaquillia. The diarist Amhlaoibh Ó Súilleabháin (Humphrey O'Sullivan) recorded a different Irish name for the peak: Beann na nGaillti (Cinnlae Amhlaoibh Ó Súilleabháin, iv, 102). The names of three nearby places are derived from this: Glencoshnabinnia (PWJ, iii, 366), Slievecoshnabinnia and Carrignabinnia. The anglicised name Galtymore is recorded as early as the Civil Survey of Co. Tipperary (Down Survey, 1654-56), where it is mentioned (spelt exactly as today) as a boundary feature of the barony of Clanwilliam.   Galtymore is the highest mountain in the Galty Mountains area and the 14th highest in Ireland. Galtymore is the highest point in county Limerick and also the highest in Tipperary.

Hello everyone. We're the Rubbish Bikers. Just to say a quick word of thanks to Jackill for his helpful comments on Galtymore and the region around it. We set off last Saturday (10th Sept) in very misty and cloudy conditions.Got to the carpark at the end o fthe Black Road and rode about 50% off the trail to the cairn. Headed NW but couldn't see a damn thing.

When we got onto the coll we were probably too short as we had to descend first before we could climb up Galtymore. Ended up climbing it from the southern side but not too difficult. Bit like a big green boggy hill isn't it? Got to the summit and hung around for a few minutes before retracing our steps. We'd still be up there if it wasn't for the Geko GPS. What a lifesaver!!

Can't really say how scenic it was, I guess the drop down to the corrie/lough on the far side was pretty steep. Managed to ride down all of the turf track from the cairn on the way back and stunned a few hikers who had just started out.

Ony advice to give is that you might consider staying in the lodges in Kilcoran Hotel. Worked out at €275 + €20 for electricity for two nights. They sleep 6 (but you could squeeze 8) in 3 ensuite bedrooms full facilities a cracking deal. Bring your own food and booze and it works out really cheap.

Not sure what to climb next, if anyone knows accessible 900m+ mountaind that you can portage a bike up let us know. Our GPS readinsa are a bit different from yours but I don't really know what I'm talking about so maybe it's me?
