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 515th highest in Ireland.

Short Summary created by Onzy, Peter Walker, jackill,  3 Mar 2015
Start at the track GR Q352 003 A, parking for 2 cars, and follow it between stone walls towards the lake .you have two choices, the steep zigzag path visible directly ahead or the track around to the north which meets the top of the zig zags in any case.The track leads you to within 300 meters of the summit, from the track end an easy walk across short heather will see you there . The views to the islands are exceptional. However the view inland is quite something as well. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/419/comment/5178/
