Lough Curra mountain sits beside Lough Curra. It and the cliffs above it have attracted a lot of attention. Robert Lloyd Praeger [The Way That I Went] draws attention to these cliffs (and the one above Lough Muskry, further east): “The alpine flora of the Galtees, which is fairly rich in comparison with that of other Irish mountain regions, is concentrated on these high cliff-ranges over the tarns. The rarest plant which occurs is the Alpine Rock Cress, of which a small colony was discovered by H.C. Hart about Lough Curra.”

Anyway the lakeside setting for the mountain is simply magnificent. I doubt many people visit the place in a year, certainly there are no tracks or signs of anyone passing. You could reach the place from the North starting near Clydagh Bridge (R 874 281 C). I got to it by descending from Slievecushnabinnia, a drop of some 200m. Choose a route off Slievecushnabinnia that veers well to the left of the lough to avoid cliffs Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/277/comment/536/
