Re Guinness GAA Ad
Fair play Simon. Careful now though, you risk being contacted by Game of Thrones fans looking for confirmation of filming locations around the North. But perhaps the Tourist Board have trumpeted Binevenagh and other locations enough at this stage.

I'm interested to see yet another beguiling glen on the northside of Dingle, as I have cause to be in the area from time to time and my companions don't always enjoy a torturous ascent. Glentenassig is perhaps one of the best family walk locations on the peninsula, with the boardwalk around the lake making an easy stroll for all abilities.

Further west, there is parking and a trail to facilitate even a toddler's trek towards loch an duin, but Glenahoo is more restrictive parking wise, what a pity (or a blessing to others).

I hear talk that Curaheen in the Slieve Mish is possibly the longest glacial valley in the country, yet very infrequently visited. And of course Derrymore Glen.

What surprises me most is that so few Tralee people ever venture out that way.

Anyone visiting the area might be interested in the attached link I came across from the local tourist office. Surprisingly, it also includes a detailed description of a traverse of the Faha Ridge!

Slieveboy: Default hill
scannerman 4 hours ago.
I've forgotten how many times I've gone up this hill, must be over 50. I live relatively close so its the easy option when larger 'expeditions' are a non starter. It has a very decent balcony walk...

Sugarloaf Hill: Easy access and log book to sign
ilenia 16 hours ago.
Sugarloaf Hill is usually climbed from Bay Lough Car Park, S03056 09981, ample parking there. Cross the road and follow the wall and the eroded path all the way up, it's steep enough but you'll re...

Just sometimes and just for a short while a damp forest can show a misty fairy side. And so it was one January day after a heavy raincloud had passed and the sun had majicked this sprite into the ...

Slieve Beg: Southern plunge

The famous side of Slieve Beg is the NE, gashed by the Devils Coachroad. However the SE side also has its drama.Taken on a frosty slippy day from Cove.

Dromderalough NE Top: Long route from the south.
Collaborative entry Last edit by: Colin Murphy 3 days ago.
Not normally done in isolation, this top usually forms part of a walk involving Dromderalough itself or Mangerton. One approach is from the north, which has the advantage of a gently rising track ...
