The name of Torc Mountain, like Mount Eagle and the Wolf's Step on the Dingle Peninsula, reminds us of a wild animal once common in the forests of Ireland. Wild boar is significant in Celtic mythology, being depicted on Celtic artefacts found in continental Europe, Ireland and Britain. It represents physical strength and heroic fighting skills.   Torc Mountain is the 428th highest place in Ireland. Torc Mountain is the most northerly summit in the Mangerton area.

Believe me, you'll enjoy this walk if you start it from the little church beside the road from Killarney to Moll's Gap (at Galway's bridge). The way is a part of Kerry way and it is very easy to walk. Reaching the Torc summit is easy and offers a very nice view of Killarney National Park.
