From the vicinity of Cloghane church there is a strange optical illusion whereby this peak seems higher than the summit, though it is actually over 100m lower.   Brandon Peak is the 25th highest summit in Ireland.

I was there in 2010.
Getting there: From Tralee , follow the N86 road, and then the R56 for Cloghane.. Just before village cross a bridge, pass the garda station on the right, and then cross another bridge and take the next left. Go to the end of the road. Start point is on the farm gate with climbing warning sign. Go through several gates and at the end keep the track on the right side. Walk up the track for a hundred metres. It is very wet on the pass, so going right to the top - keep going near the fence on the north.. go up to the gate, and then you'll find a good path to the top.
as everyone know the summit is frequently shrouded in clouds but it gives an opportunity to see the brocken spectre..
time: about 5 hours Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/24/comment/6787/
