So Much choice...Any suggestions?
Context of comment:Hi! I've been surfing on this site for a while. I cannot find a general discussion forum so feel free to move this if you have one. The list of every mountain in Ireland over 500m in particular is a useful guide to all the challenges ahead. Thanks for that. My girlfriend and I have climbed two mountains so far, they being Cruach Phádraig at 764m and Lugduff at 652m (assuming it is Lugduff and not Camderry which is on the left of the Upper Lake in Glendalough). We are in Dublin and want to get out for Saturday. Kerry and West Cork, along with Galway, Mayo and Donegal are too far. Other than these where on the island would you recommend for the best climb/walk for 4-7 hours? Wherever we are going we will stay overnight. If there were a hurling match on Sunday I'd just go to the nearest mountain range to wherever it was so this question wouldn't arise:-). Thanks in anticipation.
Message:My suggestion, as unusual as it might seem to car drivers, would be to have a list of the nearest train stations to the different mountain ranges, and how to get there. We don't all have cars, unfortunately. I had initially planned on getting the train but the difficulty in finding out how far the respective mountains were to the nearest train station has me bringing my Dad's car. The Iarnród Éireann network map is here: http://tinyurl.com/zbnlf but it was hard to find out the nearest towns to the respective mountain ranges (I was looking in particular at the Galtees). PS: Your frontpage photos are fantastic. I had never heard of Hungry Hill or even the Caha Mountains, but what a picture! Excellent job allowing us to see where the photos were taken just by moving the mouse.
