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 83rd highest place in Ireland.

Short Summary created by wicklore,  2 May 2011
Slieve Bearnagh is one of the most dramatic of the Mourne Mountains, and it is topped by a huge tor that must be climbed if one is a purist. Otherwise reaching the wider summit area of short grass and breathtaking views is more than enough for most regular walkers.

One approach is to start at Meelmore Lodge at J305 308 A. (Secure parking but at a cost of a couple of pounds), or at a nearby free car park at J311 313 B. From either place follow tracks out onto the open bog to meet the Trassey Track at J312 305 C. Follow the Trassey Track up to the Hare’s Gap at J323 288 D. Turn right and follow the very steep slope up to reach Slieve Bearnagh North Tor. Follow the track for another few hundred metres to climb up to the main summit of Slieve Bearnagh. Whether approaching from the north or south, the ground is very steep but if the Mourne wall can do it so can you! If descending to the south keep to the left of the Mourne Wall to avoid some mini cliffs above the col with Slieve Meelmore. From Meelmore Lodge Bearnagh can be reached in about two hours, although the steep slopes may slow you down. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/83/comment/4843/
