The anglicised form Slievanea would appear to derive from Ir. Sliabh an Fhia, 'mountain of the deer'. The deer is also an important symbol in Celtic mythology. In many tales they lure people into the realm of the gods. Remains of several fulachta fia (venison-cooking pits) can be found around Lough Adoon.   Slievanea is the 241st highest summit in Ireland. Slievanea is the second most westerly summit in the Central Dingle area.

The view from near the summit of Slieveanea. Looking towards the Blaskets just in front of the low stone circle is An Cnoc Maol Mor (493 mtrs) Dingle(or An Daingean ?), Beenabrack, Ballysitteragh, the Mullaghaveal Gap , Fallaghnamara and the Brandon Ridge rising towards Gearhane in the clouds. The two lakes are An Loch Geal and Loch Ui Fhiannachta.This is a really beautiful and remote part of the country yet easily accessible from the Connor Pass.
