Knocknadobar is a hill of pilgrimage. The stations of the cross were erected by Canon Brosnan in 1855. One of the wells referred to in the name is St. Fursey's Well, located at the foot of the mountain, near the start of the pilgrimage route to the summit. It is visited for a cure for eye complaints. See Máire MacNeill, 'The Festival of Lughnasa' (pp. 137-39) for details of the mountain pilgrimage.   Knocknadobar is the highest mountain in the Iveragh NW area and the 126th highest in Ireland.

You can park your car on the west side of Knocknadobar either at Coonanna Harbour or the Pilgrims car park. I started my climb up Knocknadobar North Top from the harbour. The beginning of the climb is a little tricky as you have a few fences to climb over but overall a good challenging climb with amazing views. I came down the Pilgrims route expecting it to be a quick descent, but it turned out to be longer and twistier than I thought. At the top I got some of the best views I've ever seen.
