A quiet view of the county.
Short Summary created by jackill,  29 Jan 2013
Park on the wide roadside 200 meters to the west to access a track at R22922 09900 A next to a bungalow.
This is farm land so permission may be required. A brief 10-15 minute trek will see you to the summit. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/803/comment/5562/
 
Beware of the dog
by thomas_g  9 Aug 2013
Went to ask for permission to use the described track at the dormer bungalow, two dogs, one chained and the other loose. The loose dog seemed friendly enough and came up to sniff me with tail wagging and completely unexpectedly took a chunk out of my fingers.
No one at the house so I used a nearby field to ascend instead.
For anyone thinking of going from taurbeg to Taur, forget about it, I gave up after and hour of horrible going, best to ascend from the south with suitable permission. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/803/comment/15059/

Sanctuary with a view
by sandman  9 Jul 2012
If you are travelling to Kerry why not make the journey feel shorter if like me you come from the north east and visit the two small hills of Taur and Taurbeg .For Taur -at point R22922 09900 A you will see a farm track on left side of dormer house both use same entrance from road (so ask permission) follow this track whuch will bring you close to trig and small cairn ,up and down in 30mins inclusive of asking permission no problem with parking.
