Short Summary created by jackill, aidand,  25 Sep 2012
This is normally climbed as an add on to Beenoskee and Stradbally. To climb it on its own park at Lough Annascaul and follow the roadway up past the lake until it peters out in the bog above. A northerly walk across rather wet ground will bring you to the col between Beenoskee and Coumbaun. It is then an easy pull up grassy Coumbaun, though there is a fence to cross. The summit is featureless. Allow 2 - 3 hours for the return trip. In another setting this would be a fine hill, but Coumbaun is over shadowed by its impressive neighbours.

Part of a lovely loop
by ahogan  3 Dec 2015
This can be picked off as part of a clockwise loop from the northern side taking in Stradbally, Beenoskee and Beenatoor also. See track 3158 for a detailed description. Coombane is the final summit visited so I've only included directions back to the road in this post.

The summit itself is relatively flat on top but there is a steep drop to the northern side so take care to locate the ridge (quite a well defined grassy track) running northeast and descend (keeping the steep drop on your left) until it is possible to drop off the ridge and into the valley below to the north. You will need to cross a small stream, before picking up the pathway Q5689 1041 A (initially grassy, then becoming more stony) which leads back to the road at Q5657 1171 B. Ideally, have a second car here to avoid a 4k trek back along the road to the start point. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/254/comment/18399/

On the way to better things...
by Colin Murphy  2 Nov 2015
Once you've ascended to Benoskee, this one's simplicity itself, involving an ascent of about 40m up a gently rising slope - although you do have to negotiate a few peat hags around the col. The hill itself is unremarkable - a big grassy mound with no summit marking. An easy bag with fine views, and little else to recommend it. Bag it, move on to the big boys to the east!

Worth a quick detour on a clear day
by Bunsen7  28 Dec 2016
Modest by comparison with its neighbours, this grassy hilltop can be easily bagged when decending the western side of Beenoskee, and carefully crossing a fence. The top is unmarked. Pleasing views northwards. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/254/comment/18742/

I don't normally do requests, but while coming along the ridge from Banoge to Knockmulanane I took this photo of ,from the left, Beenatoor, Coumbaun, Beenoskee and Stradbally Mountain.In the foreground is Loch Thuairin Mharta and it's smaller companion(no name I'm afraid).
The valley below has several old tracks along it (many almost disappearing) and a scattering of stone sheep pens.The ground was fairly good even after heavy rain with just a few boggy parts. There is a track that rises from the carpark above Anascaul (at Lough Anascaul - Q583 052 C) to the level of this largely flat, isolated plateau at about 400mtrs.
