A fine hill with an impressive rocky summit
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy,  4 Jun 2013
Park at V645 863 A, where there is just room to squeeze one car on the grassy verge. Go through gate and proceed SSE along the track for 1km tot he end of the track, then head SE across the mostly flat open countryside, the going underfoot marshy in places. After about 600m you will reach more sharply rising terrain at V652 852 B. Turn east and head directly up the slope, which is mostly low heather, slippery in places. After 1 km you will reach the summit, which is marked by a long, narrow rocky ridge. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/473/comment/5232/

Hill with a view

On a fine day, the view from Beenreagh offers a stunning panorama. Lots of people skip this top when tackling the classic Glenbeigh Horseshoe route. But to do so is to miss out on a summit that offers more than just great views, for the long, rocky ridge resembling a Stegosaurus' back, provides some grand scrambling opportunities. We came at this top from Coolroe and then tacked the entire Horseshoe. A video of the entire route can be seen at:

Wet Summer walking in Glenbeigh
by Geo  26 Aug 2012
This summit perhaps may not be climbed as part of a classic horseshoe walk around Glenbeigh, but when you have a group of six walkers, of whom three are avid MV list tickers, it's very hard to ignore! We parked to the left of the boreen leading to Coomasaharn lake at V63868 85530 C where there is a piece of open waste ground, easily identified by a large yellow timber disc in the middle (for all the world making it look like an unfinished roundabout!)
When the cars were safely locked up we walked back the boreen about 400m NE crossing the river Behy in the process, then took a very rough and extremely waterlogged track South. Our plan was either to tackle Knocknaman, Macklaun or Beenreagh first on our way to Meenteog and we chose the latter as the weather looked promising.
When the track peters out it's a matter of carefully picking one's steps SE across the boggy valley bottom which rises gently then steeply bringing one to the top in a little over an hour in our experience.
From here we took off South to Macklaun as the so-far promising morning turned into a howling squall from the NW which lasted til we were the far side of Meenteog on the col to Coomacarrea. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/473/comment/14773/

Beenreagh is a high ridge some 1.6km long, itself in the middle of the sinuous ridge leaving the Glenbeigh horseshoe through Macklaun and finishing near Glenbeigh at Seefin.

It has a series of rock outcrops of which the most interesting and well worth a look and a scramble is the summit, made of broken slabs. While you are at the summit there you may think that the outcrop 160m NE is a bit higher. According to my GPS measurements however it was about 3m lower.

Our photo shows the long bumpy ridge of the top from the slopes of Macklaun. The summit is left of centre above the wall. In the back ground over Dingle Bay is a wonderful view of the western Slieve Mishes. Starting from the right, in mist is Baurtregaum then Caherconree then the lower summit of of Lack Mountain, then above the summit of Beenreagh, the summits of Moanlaur and Knockmore.
