The hill of Carranarah, which, immediately behind the town of Foxford, rises to a height of 600 feet above the lough - the winter level of the lough itself being 42 feet - commands a good view of Loughs Cullin and Conn, and of the mountains lying around its northern shores, and generally of the poor, wretchedly- cultivated, but romantic country lying around Foxford. (James Fraser, Hand Book for Travellers in Ireland, 1844)   Carranarah is the 1397th highest place in Ireland. Carranarah is the most southerly summit and also the second most westerly in the Ox Mountains area.

A small hill with lovely views over Lough Cullin .. by paddyhillsbagger   (Show all for Carranarah)
 
A short walk for the morning after the night before
by three5four0  15 Jul 2010
There is space for several cars at G278029 B, just off the minor road and on a forestry track. Walked to the end of the road, which turns into a lane. At G280022 C, crossed a small wall into a field, turned left and walked up hill, crossing a couple of fences on the way. The last being electrified, quickly gained the Trig Point and then the summit a few minutes later, disturbing a small herd of goats on the way there. Like Farbreiga, Carranarah gives a lot for little effort, with the two loughs of Conn & Cullin stealing the show on the view front. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1038/comment/5947/
