The cliffs of Minaun are spectacular when viewed from Keel. They offer a popular launch site for hang-gliding. The summit is a magnificent viewpoint, giving a surprisingly broad view of all of Achill and much of West Mayo, considering its moderate height. For a walk to the TV mast on Minaun, see Siúlóidí Acla, walk K. The summit is a little further on. Sometimes spelt Menawn.   Minaun is the 670th highest summit in Ireland.

Peter Walker on Minaun, 2008

On the right sort of evening, there can be few guiltier pleasures than the deplorably lazy drive up Minaun to watch the sunset. A leisurely 15-20 minute stroll leads to the main summit, and despite the kind of summer that even Noah might consider 'moist' the terrain was benign enough that boots weren't really needed. The views to either side of the ridge are very fine and spacious, so it's best to travel a little way down from the top and enjoy them to the full. The top itself is a lovely, breezy place to linger and watch the sun sink slowly into the sea to the left of Achill Head, safe in the knowledge that the car is within such easy reach.
