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.

Cruach Mhárthain/Mount Eagle Circuit Part II
by ciarraioch  22 Oct 2011
After descending from Cruach Mhárthain, we struck off southwards from the Mám Clasach saddle (where crosses the Ventry-Dunquin road) at Q340 015 B. Keeping to the fence, we ascended over boggy ground until we met a mountain bohereen at Q335 006 C. Following this we eventually came to the summit, to enjoy magnificent views across to Iveragh and back along Dingle Bay as far as East Kerry. We then descended SW towards Binn an Choma, being rewarded with the clear and sunny views of the Blaskets and Slea Head. We reached the Slea Head road at V318 970 D, and wander back along the road/Dingle way to our starting point at the Blasket Centre at Q315 006 E .
