Having been to the roofs of the Maamturks and Bens on clear days I think Bunnacunneen is in the same class for Connemara views. This is right in front of the main cairn looking towards the Mweelreas with Ben Gorm to their right and a bit of Killary Harbour visible below them. Further to the right were views of the Sheefreys and Croagh Patrick beyond. To the left and well beyond of Croagh Patrick was a faint shape that I think may have been Corraun Hill right beside Achill Island. Other faint shapes to its right may be some of the Nephins. Turn to the right from this point and there's another cairn just a few yards away on the edge of a steep drop into the beautiful Lough Nafooey valley with Lough Mask in the distance and the top of the Maamtrasna plateau to the north. Turn around 180 degrees and you can see Lough Corrib over the ridges behind. i didn't bother mentioning Devils Mother and the Leenane branch of the Maamturks and the Atlantic Ocean beyond Mweelrea. Actually this might be a contender for the most spectacular spot in Co Galway. Just don't come here in mist which unfortunately is not a rarity round here. Like going to see Barcelona when Messi and Iniesta are being rested. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/318/comment/6726/
