If you are looking for a typical horseshoe walk, Mullaghanattin is the one to do. With its 1000m of ascent, and 13km length, the walk is moderate demanding and it takes 4h30 - 5h00. Moreover it offers a wonderfull panorama including the Dingle peninsula, the Beara peninsula and the famous Carrauntoohil.
You can park one car at the T junction (V74739 74689 F). Then follow the road to the north and tens meters after a proeminent rock along the road, begin to climb up the slope (V74581 74936 G). One hour later or less, you reach An Cnoc Riabhach (534m). The way is easy to find : follow the wide ridge and pass by each top. I noticed 2 unnamed summits (V74837 77520 H and V74366 77372 I) at east from Mullaghanattin mount (2h20 from start). Passing the last Beann South top (3h50 from start), go to the south, you will see the old way you have to reach. It goes to a farm and the road where you parked your car. Take care of bulls and rams...
You can find a better description in the Lonely planet book "Walking in Ireland". Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/58/comment/3374/
