This headland, along with the Three Sisters and Sybil Head on the other side of Smerwick Harbour, are remnants of a chain of hills that were worn down by glacial action and eventually broken through by the sea.   Ceann Bhaile Dháith is the 1275th highest place in Ireland. Ceann Bhaile Dháith is the second most northerly summit in the Dingle West area.

Spectacular coastal outpost.
Short Summary created by simon3,  6 Feb 2012
One place to start is at around Q389 100 A going west intially, then north then north-east. In places the going is over rough dwarf furze, so long trousers are recommended. The walk up and down could take around 90 minutes. The summit is accompanied by the ruins of a Napoleonic era lookout post.
There are fine views to SW of the Three Sisters and north to the nearby Beenmore and further to the north end of the Brandon ridge.
It is possible to walk NE towards Beenmore along one of the most spectacular cliff edges in Ireland. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1004/comment/5763/

Wild and Spectacular Cliff Walk
by ciarraioch  13 Oct 2011
Per dbloke's instruction, we started at Q389 100 A and made our way west along the 'trail' which follows the coast as it turns north and, finally becoming dramatic, turns northeast. There are two peaks on the cliffs, the first with the look-out tower which is visible from many vantage points locally. Excellent views across to the Three Sisters, the northern Blaskets, back towards Cruach Mharthin, with glimpses of Skellig Michael in the far distance. In addition, the entire Brandon range is visible with impressive views of Masatiompan dropping to the sea. Kerry Head and Loop Head were also visible. We dropped down to the saddle between them and returned by the bohereen at Q391 108 B. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1004/comment/6582/

dbloke on Ceann Bhaile Dháith, 2009
by dbloke  23 Jun 2009
Low cloud had descended on the Kingdom on Sunday 21st June, so we decided to stay low. The forecast was for it to clear up later in the day. It didn't. It got foggy. Didn't stop me getting ridiculously sunburned though! We started from the junction at the village of Feohanagh by the pub called An Cuinne Q395 097 C as recommended by Kevin Corcoran in his 'Kerry Walks' book. We later discovered there is space to park further along the road nearer the start of the cliff path at Q389 100 A. The path is easy going and gently rises all the way to the remains of the tower at the top of Ballydavid Head. Apparently there are great views of the Blasket Islands and The Three Sisters. We will definitely be back to do this walk again on a clearer day, extending it over Beenmore and on towards Brandon Creek. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1004/comment/3881/
