Mount Eagle is the final up-thrust of the Dingle Peninsula, its seaward flanks descending steeply to Slea Head and Dunmore Head (the most westerly point of the Irish mainland), but the islands of the Great Blasket, Inishnabro and Inishvickillane are the partly submerged continuation of the same mountain range. Mount Eagle Lough nestles high in a hollow on the eastern flank. Along the southern slopes in the townlands of Fahan and Glenfahan are the promontory fort of Dunbeg and the remains of a monastic settlement consisting of beehive huts. By comparison, the featureless summit holds little interest except for the spectacular view of West Kerry's Atlantic coast.   Sliabh an Iolair is the highest mountain in the Dingle West area and the 516th highest in Ireland.

A beautiful walk for a summer evening. I chose to start from point Q329011 A on the Dunquin to Ventry road to keep in sight of the sea. This is an easy stroll from start to finish, wet in only a couple of places. The Binn an Choma route would have been more spectacular, but more strenuous. This is a view from the track, looking towards Great Blasket Island. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/419/comment/1820/
