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.

Take the road from Ardpatrick to Glenosheen and at 3 Km take a right turn up an incline, after a further 1.5 Km you will reach a forest car park. Starting at the car park R657 184 D follow the road east for a few kilometers until you meet you will meet the intersection of an old road on your left and on your right a track heading up to high ground R662 169 E. The way-marked track provides a steady gradual climb on to the open hillside. At some sections, the track is quite eroded and you will be made appreciate a comfortable pair of walking boots (unlike mine on the day). The track reaches a T-junction and to your right you will see a cairn R653 180 F. This is quiet a nice place for lunch on a windy day as it is built around a hollow in the ground and provides good shelter. If it is too early for lunch, follow the main track from the T-Junction in a northerly direction. Several large boulders and a trig point distinguish Seefin R644 181 G. The track forms another T-junction just below the ascent to Seefin, follow the narrow (at times indistinct) boggy track east as you climb up behind the weathered crags to the trig point. Ahead to the north and a short walk away is Long Mountain. The road is only a short walk to your east R640 183. Follow it north until you meet some tracks going into the woods R637 196 H. Follow the main path southeast back to the car park; it’s a pleasant 2.4 kilometer walk through the woods. The area features many tracks and paths; make good use of these as the open ground is difficult to walk on with many areas of soft bog, uneven ground and hidden holes.
A pleasant walk but pales in comparison to its illustrious neighbour the Galtees. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/397/comment/2423/
