Bedrock type: Granite granophyre, (Mourne Mountains granite)

One of the most recognisible peaks of Mourne and perhaps the only one that necessitates removing hands from pockets. Slieve Bernagh gets its name from the two rocky granite tors which crown the summit and the gap or saddle betweeen them.   Slieve Bearnagh is the 85th highest summit in Ireland.

Fairly energetic walk, but so worth it. On a clear day there's no place I'd rather be, and even in the fog it's breathtaking just wandering round between the tors. Majestic.
Best approach is from the Trassey Car Park, to the hare's gap then up the steps and follow the wall. Alternatively turn right off the trassey track and go past the slabs to the col, and there's a path of sorts that isn't on the map but leads to within 30m of the far west tor.
