Oddly enough, despite the adjective beag ('small'), it is actually higher than Slieve Meelmore, so perhaps it is a question of bulk rather than height.   Slieve Meelbeg is the 111th highest place in Ireland.

We hiked up Slieve Loughshannagh and Slieve Meelbeg from the car park to the NE of the Spelga Reservoir. Right there a nice track starts leading towards the Mourne Wall (keep to the right when the track forks) and the col between Loughshannagh and Carn. First we climbed Loughshannagh and then proceeded to Meelbeg, always with an eye on the clouds. Fortunately the raingods were asleep so we could complete our nice walk by decending from Meelbeg the way we came and circeling around Loughshannagh's Eastern flank (there's a path as well). All in all a very nice route - not too challenging and also doable for somebody who's only looking for a longer stroll.

The picture shows from the left: Slieve Meelmore, Slieve Bernagh, Slieve Donard, Cove Mtn, Slievelamagan and Slieve Binnian. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/103/comment/3257/
