Notes on name: The word béillic is used in West Cork and Kerry for a rock-shelter used by shepherds. This is often an overhanging rock or group of rocks which affords some cover from the elements. There is such a rock-shelter on the southern slopes of the mountain. The word may be a variant of speilg and sceilg, and all three may ultimately be derived from Latin spelunca, ‘cave’.

Picture: Unprominent Bealick in front of Carran
Gougane Barra access: Park in Gougane Barra at the western most carpark shown on OSI sheet 85 at grid ref A (W070 653).
Note there is a €5 all day parking charge, automated barrier, coins only accepted.

Follow the Gougane Barra Trail steeply uphill to the north from the car-park.
After about 600m the trail breaks clear of the forest and turns right. Stay on the trail to its high point about 80m further on.
You should then pick up a faint intermittent track heading north to the ridge.
Conditions underfoot are good on the track but expect long tussocky grass elsewhere.
There is no distinct summit. Best bet is to head for the fence T junction at B (W07077 66510) where you are within a stones throw of several likely contenders.

Approximately 1.7km, 270m ascent from carpark to summit taking about 45 mins one way.
(Carpark to Carran Far North return trip 6 hrs.).

Access from road at DernColg Wd (W052 650). This is also possible crossing rough but walkable land.

Picture: The summit of Bealick . 537meters
Between two counties
by Wilderness 22 Apr 2018
I approached this mountain from the North East ,coming from the Coomataggart mountains. When I got to the top I had to walk around for a few minutes to pinpoint the true summit; which I'm sure is the rocks in the photograph. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/1453/comment/19904/

Boring summit, beautiful area.
by Colin Murphy 30 Jun 2021
Like several of the hills in the area, Bealick is a summit barely discernible from the surrounding landscape, a slightly elevated boggy area that is unmarked. In compensation, there are decent views all round. As we descended to the SW we came across a fine example of a standing stone at roughly C (W053 652), along with fine views of Lough Nambrackderg nestling in the north eastern flank of Caoinkeen SE top.
