Bedrock type: Purple mudstone and sandstone, (Ballytrasna Formation)

Whilst the origin of this unusual name, along with Bweengduff, is unclear, they are almost certainly related to the nearby settlement of Bweeng (Ir. Na Boinn) and the townlands of Beennamweel East and West. One possibility is that Boinn is a corruption of Ir. muing, ‘rushy area’, and this explanation would fit well with its application to an upland areas of moderate height in Bweeng Little and Bweengduff.   Bweengduff is the 868th highest summit in Ireland. Bweengduff is the most easterly summit in the Boggeragh Mountains area.

A good forest road to access this summit
Short Summary created by jackill,  3 Aug 2012
Park at a forest entrance W46444 88741 A, room for 5 cars. Follow the track into the forest , along the Duhallow way, taking the second left, then the first right, then second left then first right up to the buildings and masts. Follow the track around the back of the building to the trig pillar Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/757/comment/5516/

Tis an awful affliction bagging hills. Worse again is bagging hills under 500 meters because you stupidly tell yourself , "ah sure I'll get 4 or 5" and end up crippled by distance and drowned by bogwater. Such is the case with trying the Bweengs and Mount Hillary on the same day.
Anyway Bweengduff is reached from the road at W46444 88741 by following the Duhallow way (and don't take shortcuts unless you like swimming!) and hanging a left and then a right to the most mast adorned summit in Ireland. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/757/comment/4051/

I started my ascent of Bweengduff and Bweeng little from W46004 91412 B, was able to drive to this point elevation
of 254mts, just followed good track all the way to Summit area. Was more than dissapointed with what I discovered
behind one of the mast enclosures. A fiat car that was maybe stolen or not! and driven up to Bweengduff and dumped
what a sad sight, after the Bullets on Newtown Hill, the open dump on Coolnahau Hill and now the scrapyard of Bweengduff
I wonder what next. Some sad people out there! Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/757/comment/17988/

Enjoyable Walk !
by damomac  24 Jun 2016
Nice handy walk on good roadway which has recently been upgraded to facilitate installation of more wind turbines. Park at forest entrance and it's approx 3km to the telecommunication masts. For a more challenging walk, loop around Bweeng Little and continue on down to Laharn Cross (6km from car). Do it on a sunday evening and you might take in some irish dancing (http://irdduhallow.com/tourism-and-culture-north-cork-kerry/culture/laharn-cross-dancing/).

Turn right at the cross roads and after 200 meters take the next gravel road on right and this will take you back to the masts. Parts of this are a good workout but the path surface is very good. Continue past the masts and back to the car for a 13.3km walk which can take 2 hrs 45 mins. Good mobile phone coverage throughout all the walk.

The Fiat Punto is still there, now minus it's engine ! Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/757/comment/18582/

easy hill close to cork
by petercrowley  24 Aug 2013
my first hill was an easy one, actually cycled up to it before i realised it was high point. a good starter, hard core road all the way to the top. lots of masts at the top but a short trip across to bweeng little will give you better scenery.
