[Duplicate comment from Beenmore - part of a 3 summit loop walk] Completed the three summits of Been Hill, Beenmore and Drung Hill in an enjoyable loop walk incorporating the Kerry Way. Parked just off the main road and started along the Kerry way heading south west. The way follows the western edge of Drung Hill and Beenmore before swinging behind Beenmore and dropping down through a small forested area and rising again to pass a small ridge beyond Been Hill. We left the path just past the forested area and climbed the rock-strewn slopes of Been Hill until we reached the summit ridge. After a brief rest and soaking up of the views we headed northwards along the ridge and then dropped and climbed to the summit of Beenmore, a shorter descent and rise to the final summit of Drung Hill. The sloping ridge of Drung Hill lead downwards and we eventually veered left down the slightly steeper and somewhat mucky/slippy slop to rejoin the Kerry Way a few hundred metres from the start point on the main road. Overall it was a relatively good stretch of the legs (about 4 - 5 hours walking) with great views across Dingle Bay to to Dingle and beyond and across the Iveragh Peninsula.
