The large peninsula, which is very nearly an island, lying between Achill and the mainland of Mayo is called Corraun (Ir. Corrán Acla, 'sickle of Achill'). The name may refer to the shape of this hill or perhaps to the promontory Gubnahardia, near which the village of Corraun is situated. Corraun is part of the parish of Achill. For a walk on the S slopes of Corraun Hill, see Siúlóidí Acla, walk M.   Corraun Hill is the 492nd highest summit in Ireland.

Climbed this hill on Wed. 12 Oct 2011. Our intention was to start from Belfarsad Bridge but the blanket of thick mist covering the Plateau made me opt for the simpler climb from Burnanioo Bridge some 4.5k further south along the same road. To get to the start we turned S off the R319 at F763 011 and followed the minor road for about 7.5k to L7364793890 K where we parked in the church car park on the left. Locals advised that it was quite in order to park there. We walked back north along the road for 500m, crossing the Burnanioo Bridge on the way to L737 943 where we turned right up a well made track for about 1.4k to a T junction L751 948. From here we turned left and followed the track along a short way to its end L749 950. It was then a straight forward climb SE up the hillside for about 1.2k to the summit trig pillar L7540696048 and a nearby cairn. Unfortunately the thick mist still persisted and we did not enjoy any of the fine views commented on by other mv members. As we also wanted to include Corraun Hill South we headed down SE to a wide but mist covered saddle (Pt 421). Coming down in the mist we were a little confused by what appeared to be a large expanse of water directly below us, especially as it was not shown on the map. On closer inspection the "lough" proved to be simply a very large area of shallow water caused by 2/3 days of continuous rainfall ! Anyone wishing to only climb Corraun Hill could either retrace their steps from the summit or come down to Pt 421 and then go SW down to the origional access track F751 948 L which could then be followed down to the start.
