We took in Benmore as part of looped walk of Croaghaun but it's possible to make a walk of this all on it's own and it's a good plan B if the weather is unkind or there is cloud cover on Croaghaun. As mentioned by Harry Goodman the best placeto park is at Keem Strand. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1110/comment/20796/
