This is a lower top just 600m W of Croaghaun itself. A little caution is required on the summit in poor visibility due to the precipice to the N. Offshore winds, which can blow walks towards or even over the cliffs, are not unknown here.   Croaghaun SW Top is the third highest mountain in the Achill/Corraun area and the 172nd highest in Ireland. Croaghaun SW Top is the second most westerly summit in the Achill/Corraun area.

A PATRICK ZERKOWSKI FILM
by CaptainVertigo  25 Jan 2015
The second half of Patrick Zerkowski's beautiful film, Achill 2014, shows his walk up Croaghaun. This is one of the many mountains that I have "saved" for some sun shining day in year's to come. Because it has to be one of our very best, as this film shows. A visual feast!

And may I say, an audio feast,, as well. I thought the choice of Paradise by Coldplay was inspired Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/166/comment/17813/
