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 456th highest summit in Ireland. Torc Mountain is the most northerly summit in the Mangerton area.

I climbed Torc Mountain with my wife & 5 kids. We started in the lower car park just beyond the entrance to Muckross House and climbed up above the waterfall and beyond the upper car park, heading towards the Black Valley. After a few Km, there is a clear sign showing you the way up to Torc along the path. The sleepers which were laid a few years ago make it very easy for beginners and ensure your feet are kept clean & dry. The view all the way up and from the top was amazing. We had a clear view of the lakes, Killarney town, the Black Valley & The Reeks. Roundtrip to the car was close to 4 hours but we spent a long time on the summit.
