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.

Climbed on a blustery and showery August day, ascending via the stations of the cross and descending by the ridge to the same point. There is parking for (just) a single car adjacent to the 'stations' starting point on the road between Deelis and Coomanna Pier. Pretty wet underfoot on ascent, although the crosses broke up what might otherwise be regarded as a slog. Great sea views northwards over to Corca Dhuibhne and Blascaodi, and also southwestwards to Caherciveen and Valentia. The descent by the ridge was very different - dry underfoot on top, an excellent ridge walk all in all. It felt like a different mountain. Our only problem was navigating around the rock benches and heavy heather and furze towards the bottom. There must be a better way! We arrived back at more or less the same point, travelling laterally northwards at the bottom over two fences to exit at the stations of the cross starting point. Well worth the effort! Buíochas mór to the farmers and landowners. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/123/comment/4000/
