As recommended by "Best Irish Walks", we parked at the northern shore of Doo Lough and approached from the Glencullin corrie. At first daunting, there's an easy enough route up using the left-to-right upwardly sloping ramp at the back of the corrie. The ramp brings you to the col between Ben Lugmore and Ben Bury, which is marked with a cairn. A right turn here brings you to Ben Bury's summit. Fantastic panoramas from the top, but unfortunately a late start meant we didn't have time to sample Ben Lugmore or Mweelrea. Heard the next day on the news that a party were lost on the mountain overnight, so heed Best Irish Walks' warning "...allow plenty of time, Mweelrea is an unforgiving mountain in the dark".
