Beenmore is about midway along the ridge between Been Hill and Drung Hill, but is higher than both. It dominates the valley of Gleensk and features prominently in the view from the Kerry Way.   Beenmore is the 179th highest place in Ireland.

Short Summary created by markmjcampion, Colin Murphy  6 Mar 2021
This top along with its neighbour Drung Hill constitutes a steep-sided massif to the SW of Glenbeigh. It's often done in a long loop with other hills on the Glenbeigh Horseshoe. There are great views esp. of Dingle Bay, the Glenbeigh hills, Dingle peninsula, Knocknadobar and the reeks. Huge corries linger to the E.
NE. Park at V62019 88679 starA - room for 3 cars. Walk 100m W and follow the waymarked sign left up a track at V61854 88672 starB. Pass a house, a disused farmyard and go through several gates until you reach V60705 88690 starC. Cross a fence and head uphill on natural steps to top Drung Hill, then SW for 1km over solid, grassy terrain to reach the cairned summit of Beenmore after 20 minutes. 1.5hrs+
W. You can also approach from the W via a new farm track that comes right up to the col at V59665 86278 starD. Start at same place as above but, instead of ascending Drung, continue SW along the Kerry Way and when you're W of the summit keep an eye out for an obvious track coming up from the forest. From the col there's a steep but short pull up to the summit - you could then take in Drung and descend via either the N or E ridge, the latter being gentler with a feint track and largely grassy.
An alternative start from the W is to park (discreetly) a little SW up the road from the entrance to the KW. Shortly after joining the KW branch off E and climb steeply to the flattish summit of Been Hill and head NE to the aforementioned col. 1.5hrs
