Ó Cíobháin gives Beann, 'peak', as the true name of this mountain. Apparently the name Bruach na Binne really belonged to a feature a few miles to the W overlooking the Bridia Valley and was mistakenly applied to this peak by the sappers.   Broaghnabinnia is the 82nd highest place in Ireland. Broaghnabinnia is the most northerly summit in the Dunkerron Mountains area.

Steep sided, flat topped and great views.
Short Summary created by simon3, Colin Murphy, jackill,  30 Sep 2015
Broaghnabinnia provides great views of the Reeks, Carrauntoohil in particular, from the south. It is steep on all sides and visitors should be comfortable with scrambling. From the east park at V8175 8218 A and start at V8187 8171 B. From the west climb the nose starting at around V7918 8113 C. It is also possible to walk up from the road skirting north of Lough Reagh, then heading west and later north-west. An alternative approach is from the north. Park at V8175 8218 A and continue along Kerry Way to the west for 500m. Where the track turns to the right, enter a grassy field through an open gateway and drop to the Cummeenduff River. Cross fence and river and head SW up steep grassy slope - some scrambling required. Continue to V810 816 D and swing left up to point V813 814 E. onto the broad E-W grassy summit area. Continue 1km west. The top is grassy and flat and marked only by a fence post. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/80/comment/4840/
