I highly recommend Finnararagh. It's not as climbed as the more popular mountains in Kerry like Carrauntuohill and Brandon. I would say this is mainly down to the fact that It's a good 45 minutes drive beyond Killarney. That said on a clear day it offers spectacular 360 degree views. You can see Brandon, Carrauntuohill/Caher and of course Mullaghanattin.
Finnararagh has some amazing lakes that are nestled into the mountain. Make sure you have a good summers day for this one as it's the only way to really appreciate the scenery. Unfortunately I didn't have my camera on the day with the sunny weather but hopefully the photo will give you some idea of how nice it can be.`
From Killarney, take the road for Glencar. Go past Glencar post office, turn left at Bealalaw Bridge. Park your car at Cloon Lough (approx. E (V70820 78785)
Description of walk:
Head up the track on the northwestern side of Cloon Lough.
1 Make your way to the summit of Coomura mountain [666m above sea level]
2. Next make for the top of Coomnacronia via two cols to the couth of Coomura
3. Next ascend to spot Height 667m which is the summit of Finnararagh
4. Your now on the ridge at this point. Follow the ridge in a north easterly direction to spot height 543m to 570m to 551m to 619m . (Warning steep ridge at both sides from 543m on)
5. Turn east to spot height 636m heading for Mullaghanattin. Continue the ridge to 657m. Then drop down steeply (be vigilant here, steep ground that would be dangerous in foggy conditions) and climb sharply up to 752m (Beann). There is fence that runs all the way to the top of the mountain.
6. After 752m continue on the ridge for approx 1/3 km to meet the spur going down in a north westerly direction to join the road beside Cloon Lough. This road will bring you back to your car. Be careful coming down the spur as this ground is quite steep in places. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/160/comment/1653/
