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.

dwrenne on Hungry Hill, 2007
by dwrenne  21 Aug 2007
Climbed 19/08/2007. A nice morning with a forecast for rain coming from the North west later, so I started at 9:30 from the main road. I couldn't find it at first as I was looking for the Rossmackowen Bridge but the road has been widened, so the original bridge is in on the right, just about where the mountain looks like it should be climbed from. I walked up the lane for a about a 1 KM and came to Tara cottage and the steel gate. From there I followed the track to the left until I came under the mountain proper and the path seemed to head in the wrong direction towards the small hut. At that point I headed straight up a gully to the right and some steep scrambling, stopping for a wheeze every 20 meters or so. After an hour the first cairn comes into view and then I was up. Had a snickers and then headed for the larger southerly cairn. It looks like someone has put quartz rocks every 10 meters or so along the path which looks like something from Hansel and Gretel.
The decent is quite steep but is well signed with yellow paint on rocks. Once the flatter area is reached you are nearly at the lake. At that point there looks like some great bouldering country as the photo shows, with 7-10 meters climbs and access to the top for a rope. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/130/comment/2798/
