Halfway round.......follow up comment
The Mweelrea Horseshoe, given the right conditions, is a memorable day out on the hills. However might I add a word of caution to Dessie1. This HS is a strenuous walk of some 15km, involves some 1000m of ascent and, in the absence of good visability, requires a need for accurate route finding. This is especially so on the descent from Ben Bury and the crossing of the various tops of Ben Lugmore. Finally this is not a mountain to be caught out on in the dark and, given the shortness of the day at this time of year, is a 7+ hour walk advisable ? I suggest it is not.
Getting back to Dessie1's question as to favourite HS walks I would also commend the Coomloughra HS in Kerry and the Glencoaghan HS in the Twelve Bens as worthy of inclusion in a top 5. However in continuing with my cautionary comments on Mweelrea these should also be applied to Coomloughra and Glencoaghan with the latter requiring 1500m of ascent and some 8 to 9 hours to complete over a far from straightforward route. I have never done any of these three horseshoe walks in winter and am drawing on experience from spring/summer/ autumn crossings.
