The environs of Benwee Head, with its cliffs, arches, stacks and islands, offers some of the most dramatic coastal scenery in Ireland, with which perhaps only SW Donegal and Co. Clare can compete. To appreciate them fully, you need to see them from the sea. Benwee Head is in the townland of Kilgalligan, which has been studied in detail in The Living Landscape: Kilgalligan, Erris, Co. Mayo by Seamas O Cathain & Patrick O'Flanagan.   An Bhinn Bhuí is the 1263th highest summit in Ireland.

Benwee head and "eire" head
by Kirwanjt  27 Apr 2010
An easy climb with Breathtaking views along the coast out to Stags of Broadhaven back across the Mullet. Accessed by taking signs for Portacloy and driving past the entrance to the beach and past old harbour. Park in new harbour and it is signposted for the track and stile up the hill. Cliffs are steep and dramatic at the edge. Also of note is the stone markings of EIRE beside the old shepherd hut. It is visible from the air and from further up the mountain.
