Bunnacunneen is a rarely climbed mountain in comparison to the nearby Maumturks. The summit is flat and vegetated with numerous peat hags. An interesting short walk follows the stream that leads from the road which takes you into the "heart" of the mountain an unusual place where you will find yourself almost entirely surrounded by the mountain, from here it's an easy climb up the right fork in the stream to the ridge which runs north to the summit and from there back down along the main ridge running south. There are quite a few fences to be encountered along the way and most of this land is farmed so you may want to check in with the farm at the southern base of the mountain. The views from the top are worth a mention as you get an excellent view of all the Maumturks aswell as views down Lough NaFooey and across to Devil's Mother.
