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.

My son Clarence and I climbed Mt Eagle from Gleann Dearg Bed and Breakfast. We followed a path and and a watercourse until we intersected with the road through the peat bogs. The best way is to stay on the road of course. When we got to the top we arranged the stones on the ground to say West Rox (for West Roxbury our nieghborhood in Boston) we had lunch and left a note wrapped in a granola bar wapper under some rocks atop the instrument monolith at the summit. We followed the ridge south west and descended at Slea Head. Above Coumenole my son lost the memory stick to his camera. (blue if you found it). If you found a memory stick email him at chchaisson@mac.com. It was a beautiful June day and the view of the islands and Dunquin is magical.
