The association with Fionn Mac Cumhaill is reinforced by the fact that Seefin Mountain overlooks a valley named after his son: Glenosheen (Ir. Gleann Oisín, 'valley of Oisín').   Seefin Mountain W Top is the highest mountain in the Ballyhoura Mountains area and the 477th highest in Ireland.

Picture: Summit of Seefin on the Ballyhoura mtns
john_desmond on Seefin Mountain W Top, 2005

Seefin at 528 mtrs is the highest peak in the Ballyhoura mtns. There are 2 main ways to get to it, either from the rough road to the West or the public road to the East. The start of the walk from the East is at R 662 168 I (Space for 2-3 cars). Pretty easy walk on a good path, can be a bit wet below the summit though. On the western route, you can drive up but it looks a bit rough for an ordinary car. Its probably better to leave the car back on the public road and walk up. The picture shows the summit, just a trig point with nothing else. Very nice views all around and the Galtees look stunning from here. If you can, try it on a sunny day.
