Paddy Dillon [The Mountains of Ireland] says “Knockowen is a good place to sit and study the bleaker parts of the Caha Mountains, but there are also views across to the big mountains of the Iveragh peninsula.” Richard Mersey [The Hills of Cork and Kerry] waxed more lyrical about the view from nearby Lough Namimna “.. there is a fine view north to the Matterhorn of Ireland – Mullaghanattin, across the Kenmare River." Our photo shows the summit cairn and a misty view of somewhere much nearer: Canshanvoe, a ridge that extends south of Knockeirky, the hump of some 577m, to the east of Knockowen.
