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 Foye: Not bad.

Excellent if introduceing new walkers reasonably well signed but was a little overgrown in spots and path really close to wire fencing at others. Apart from that ☺

Maybe the height gain above is correct. Maybe it just felt like one of the hardest things you?ve done. Maybe the cumul walk, Len: 56.3km, Climb: 3018m, Area: Spain, Canary Islands ()

Knockardakin: Bag it as part of the cliff walk
TommyV 3 days ago.
I technically haven't bagged the summit of this hill as it wasn't listed on MV when I did the Ciiffs of Moher walk, but it would be a very small detour to bag it. I was no more than 50 meters from...

Ben Dash: One of my earlier attempts

Ben Dash was one of my earlier attempts at hill bagging, back in the days when I had no gps and didn't believe I needed a map. I went through some bog that people had bagged turf on before I found...

My daughter, Ciara, has just completed an 11-day trek around the Annapurna Circuit in the Himalayas. She's not a particularly experienced walker, so completing it was quite the achievement. Here's...

More of a drive than a hike. Well worth it for the views.

Cooneen Hill: Very average

Nothing to add to simon3's directions. Like quite a few of the hills in North Tipperary, this one is through a Coilte forest track to begin with and then the tough push through some horrible groun...
