Spectacular circuit in perfect weather
by garrettd  19 Jun 2014
Despite the excellent weather and several parked cars, there was nobody around to collect the 'admission charge' of €4 to walk the Cummeengeera circuit. I ascended Tooth mountain first, following the right hand side of the river bank from the field with the stone circle. The direct route over Tooth from where the river valley bends to the west is quite steep and the seemingly more straightforward grass ramp on the left hand side has an awkward notch of rock in it about half way up. The rest of the circuit is easy going with spectacular views over Ardgroom Harbour, all of the mountains on the Iveragh peninsula and Hungry Hill and Glanmore to the south. The descent from the gap between Tooreenbaha and Lackabane gets easier the further down one goes with the stream providing a refreshing drink on one of the hottest days of the year.
