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 129th highest in Ireland.

Knocknadobar is a very nice lookout point on Iveragh Penisula. Started by our ladys altar near Coonanna Harbour and followed the pilgrims way up to the top. It´s not so a big challenge to climb Knocknadobar but it´s a lovely walk up. The pilgrims way follows some serpentines along the cross stations and gives very nice views to Valentia Island, the Dingle Bay and by a clear sky, to the skellings. Unfortunately the weather did a change as i was on my way, so i had no view on the top. However i can recommend Knocknadobar for an easy 3,5 hours walk.
