Turners Rock is immediately east of the tunnel at the summit of the Caha Mountain Pass. The rocks hereabouts are grooved due to the passage of ice according to T.J. Barrington (Discovering Kerry).   Turners Rock is the 842nd highest summit in Ireland. Turners Rock is the most westerly summit in the Shehy/Knockboy area.

An easy, quick climb from the layby next to the 'welcome to Co. Cork' sign just after going through the main tunnel on the N71 Caha Pass road (V9056 6011), just follow the rough paths and then fence up over wet, rocky typical Beara ground. There is a cairn on a rock outcrop in the summit area, but outcrop just to the east seems to be a couple of feet higher. Nice enough view from the summit, especially across the shapely summit of Barraboy towards Knockboy. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/732/comment/4590/
