Circuits of the Dunkerrons...
...I've done a fair few, but have to say I don't know the ground between lakes Cloonaghlin and Namona. Most of the circuits I've done from the North tend to be towards the Knockmoyle side or the other end, SW of Coomcallee, the bunch in the middle have usually involved two cars. But if you're planning some outing in the summer, it may coincide with one of my wanderings in the Dunkerrons, in which case you may have two cars. Or think of going at it from the other side, it may be longer but no lakes to negotiate and the Kerry Way helps.

Have parked the car on the Ring of Kerry road between Sneem and Castlecove and headed up Esknaloughogue, Coomcallee, Coomnahorna and Cnoc Breasail and descended to the Kerry Way to walk back to the car. The descent can be steep, so should be plotted beforehand, was a bit casual and found myself pinned on a cliff face but that was my foolishness.

Caherbarnagh East Top: An unremarkable summit, worth the visit for the views.

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

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...
