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.

There and back
by trekker  21 Apr 2012
I recently walked Hungry Hill from the Healy Pass and I must say I cannot fathom why this route isn't more popular. I parked at the top of the pass and headed southwest to the first summit of the day,Coombane. From there the route was obvious,again southwest, to Derryclancy. From the summit of Derryclancy you can see the bulk of Hungry Hill ahead.You will notice at least two bands of grass ascending the right hand side. Take either of these until they disappear,at which point you turn left and climb easily enough the remaining 150 metres to the summit. To return to your car simply retrace your steps Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/130/comment/6765/
