An Bhinn Ghorm is a mountain name which occurs 3 times in Co. Mayo. Ir. gorm is usually translated 'blue', but Breandán S. Mac Aodha suggests that 'iron-grey' is closer to the true meaning in such mountain names (MNIMA, 149). Walks: for a route taking in Ben Gorm and Ben Creggan, see Whilde & Simms, New Irish Walk Guide - West and North, 60-61.   Ben Gorm is the highest mountain in the Ben Gorm Mountains area and the 115th highest in Ireland. Ben Gorm is the most southerly summit in the Ben Gorm Mountains area and also the most easterly.

This picture was taken of Ben Gorm from across Killary Harbour, near Leenane. The actual summit is hidden behind the raised shoulder visible on the skyline to the right of the picture. The bump to the left is part of a ridge that leads south from the summit before curving eastwards to enclose a coum. Ben Gorm has three coums on it, all facing broadly east.
