Coolroe is on the long ridge that starts near Glenbeigh and goes SW to the famous Glenbeigh Horseshoe. You can reach it from Glenbeigh by taking the Kerry Way south out of Glenbeigh. This goes up a stone paved track to the col between Coolroe and Seefin from where the top is 640m SW. - an easy walk in itself or the start of the very long way round the Glenbeigh horseshoe. Coolroe is well positioned for great views of much of the Dingle and Iveragh peninsulas which makes up for the rather meagre summit feature consisting of what you can see: some old stumps.

Our picture shows one part of the vista towards the Reeks. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/764/comment/3520/

Lest we forget the special summer of 2014, there will always be:
"Glenbeigh Horseshoe, County Kerry: One of Ireland's Finest Hill Walks". Just magnificent. A real treasure for hillwalkers. In their own words "the Glenbeigh Horseshoe is one of Ireland's classic hill walks. We lengthened this by adding on a couple more summits at the start. Starting on the Kerry Way from Glenbeigh along June hedgerows bursting with fragrance and colour and alive with birdsong, the route took us across 11 summits, and covered 29 km over almost 14 hours. We eventually descended Drung Hill and rejoined the Kerry Way, picking up a lift where it meets a tarred road at Mountain Stage. We encountered 360 degree scenery the whole way, including lakes so blue they might have swallowed the entire sky, small patchwork quilt patterns of ancient field systems and golden sandy beaches bathed by aqua seas. And jaw dropping scenery of The Reeks, the Dunkerrons and the Slieve Mish Mountains."
