I must confess to having had a negative impression of the Mullaghareirks - one of sprawling square miles of forestry blanketing drab hills, neglected and unloved.
So it was a pleasant surprise to make a first visit and find an area somewhat less grim than expected.
There's good road that crosses a saddle with neighboring Ballinard, and here you will find the gate leading up to a windfarm at R0950 1110 A (it was open when we visited - but there were workers fiddling around with a turbine). We walked up the road, and turned right, passing a number of windmills. As the road turned right downhill, we went left, clambering up a steep peaty bank. Once over the fence, it was only a few minutes walk up gentle grassy heathery slopes to the summit trig pillar of the grandiosely named Mount Eagle.
Good views from the top, especially towards Tralee Bay and the Slieve Mish. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/682/comment/4055/
