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.
