I climbed Beenmore via the summit ridge from Drung Hill which took around 25 minutes. There is a cairn at the summit which had a grid ref. on my GPS of V59641 86790 D. There are stunning views(on a clear day!) across to the Dingle peninsula and the Slieve Mish mountains. I had intended to walk across to Been Hill but unfortunately ran out of daylight. As I mentioned in my Drung Hill comments, I walked for 6 hours on a beautiful frosty day in January and only met one other person - a Kerry farmer! That is the beauty of hill walking in Kerry!
