Healy Pass to Ardgroom
Beara has a special beauty all of its own. There's a richness of landscape that you'll travel far to match. It'll be a while before I can get out again, anywhere, never mind far flung Beara, but that has not stopped me dreaming and making plans. Unless I get very lucky and find someone willing to join me on this route with a second car (any offers?) I'll have to resort to my trusted bicycle. Here's what I'm thinking of. I'll park my car at the Healy Pass and cycle downhill to Lauragh and then along the coast to Ardgroom. Turn left to Glenbeg and hide the bike there. According to the "directions" facility on Google Maps, that ride will take just over an hour...cause there's a little hill to climb between Lauragh and Ardgroom, and a bit of a slope up to Glenbeg Lough. The hillwalking part will be from a little road that climbs SW of the head of the lake and emerges onto the open mountain. After that it's a walk over Lackawee, Maulin, Knocknagree, Knocknagree SE Top, Hungry Hill, Derryclancy and back to Healy Pass. The alternative would be to keep the legs fresh by leaving the bike at Healy Pass and drive down to Ardgroom . Admittedly it would be mentally taxing to cycle for an hour after the mountain walk BUT the first bit would be downhill, and the rest could proceed at an easy pace. Obviously the advantage of a two car run would be the ability to start at Healy Pass and walk the other way thus saving about 300m of ascent straight off. Well! have any of you thought about this already, or actually done the job? Please tell me what you think.

Aidand's directions are spot on. The road that looks like an entrance to a house actually leads into a forest, it is rough but manageable if you drive very slow. I drove as far as an old abandoned...

You can start at Ballaghisheen, a mountain pass V671 792. Space here for 3-4 cars. Ballaghisheen is at just over 300m so the climb to the top at around 551m is not a great strain. There is a sign ...
