child friendly in Killarney,
When god created the world he started with a small but impressive valley that is the source of the cappagh river. this river runs into lough guitane. on the road to cork from killarney and before the village of glenflesk there is a road on the right leading to lough guitane, (signposted). having turned right travel approx 5 k and turn left onto a smaller road through an open gate on white pillars (bungalow on left inside gate). a house appears on the right after a K or so turn left and follow road, past the lake and park. To your left is crohane. to your front is benaunmore and to your right is cappagh. on foot follow the trail into the valley (not over the bridge)past an old house now used as a sheep shed. this shed is on yout left continue through the gate leading ahead and cross river via stepping stones. follow trail to next gate . Bennaunmore is now in front of you. this is a strenuous climb, but the small peak to its left is very interesting and is well within the compass of most 10 year olds. it has a trail all along its right hand edge and leads to a small top with excellent views of killarney. follow obvious trail to gap in fence as you enter the valley between the two peaks. having crossed through the gap in the fence turn left up the hill. return by same route. to carry on from there head down to the lake (Lough nabroda). at the lake turn right and follow the trail between the two peaks back out to the gap in the fence you passed through earlier. OR you can follow the river right into the valley. this is just a stroll in the country with a little height gained in one K or so but the valley is Awesome. look out for perrigrines and harriers in here.
Benaunmore would be an ideal early morning walk or if you feel really good try crohane. look out for the herd of wild goats enjoy kerry

Slieve Bawn: No longer a drive-up
TommyMc an hour ago.
A series of new road barriers means that it's no longer possible to drive further than the car park on the Strokestown side. A very pleasant walk uphill from the car park to the summit and back to...

Whichever turfy outcrop is the highest point now may not be in 10 years time.

Knockalongy South-West Top: Beware of the barrier
madfrankie 10 hours ago.
We followed sandman's route to the summit which is probably the best way to explore Knockalongy and its satellites. Gentle gradients but many eroded peat hags. Worth noting that the forest barrier...

The summit is unremarkable though easy to spot as it lies along the fence.

Caherbarnagh East Top: An easy stroll from Caherbarnagh.

There is a gate to cross when coming down from the cairn at the NE end of the main Caherbarnagh ridge (I found it was actually easier to cross the fence just right of the gate). There is a faint t...

Caherbarnagh East Top: A worthwhile addition.

This summit is easily reached from the main Caherbarnagh ridge and seems easy enough to get to from Curracahill as well. If coming from Caherbarnagh, best is to cross the fence just before the col...
