Hungry Hill is the title of a novel by Daphne du Maurier based on the story of the family of her friend, Christopher Puxley, whose family acquired Dunboy Castle and its lands after the defeat of Donal Cam O'Sullivan Beare. The copper mines located on the hill in the novel are in reality further west near Allihies. The second element of the Irish name, Cnoc Daod, has long been regarded as obscure, but it is probably simply a dialectal variant of déad meaning ‘tooth’, ‘jaw’ or ‘set of teeth’. A family living at the foot of the hill are known locally as the Bun Daods.   Hungry Hill is the highest mountain in the Caha Mountains area and the 135th highest in Ireland. Hungry Hill is the second most southerly summit in the Caha Mountains area. Hungry Hill is the third highest point in county Cork.

A super hill..
by scannerman  8 Jul 2016
Climbed Hungry Hill on Tuesday 5th of July last.

What a super mountain.Steep and rocky with some stunning vistas. A mixture of walking, scrambling, balancing on rock steps, avoiding sheer walls but defeating and being defeated by some challenging gullies.

We did most of it in a thick mist accompanied by light rain which enveloped the mountain as we ascended the SE ridge. We had planned the SW ridge but it looked too exposed with the weather coming in.

Interesting to find such a boggy top considering the rocky profile but the long slog to the summit trig in a complete fog-out was'nt fun.

Going down was however. The mist grew thicker to the point of 5m visibility and the ground became very steep. We had gone off route and were descending the south face. Some very exposed cliff loomed out of the fog so rather than climb back up to gain the ridge we traversed SW along the face until easier ground found us safe passage off the hill.
