Also known as Com Caillí [T6000], 'hollow of the hag'. As with other mountain names beginning with coom-, this name has been transferred from a nearby corrie to the summit itself. It is not hard to guess which is the corrie in question as the presence of nearby Lough Coomcallee gives it away. Another Coomcallee is a townland on the north side of Macgillycuddy’s Reeks, though it is now better known by the English translation: The Hag’s Glen.   An Ghuala Ghorm is the 204th highest place in Ireland.

Updated Summary:
Broad summit surrounded by magnificent coums and loughs
Short Summary created by markmjcampion  13 Nov 2020
Coomcallee is a bulky, steep-sided mountain, situated towards the southern end of the long Iveragh ridge. The main west ridge is fenced so navigation on this side should be ok.
S. From the S drive to V60267 66312 A seeking permission to park. Follow a broad track to V60996 68103 B A, just 50 metres short of the ridge fence which you can then follow to the summit itself covered in peat hags. Allow around 1.5 hrs to summit - care must be taken in finding the broad track on descent. [see track/3613 for a map]
NW. From the NW park just E of the bridge over the Oveveen River (V59676 69799 C B). Head back to the bridge, turn right and at V60363 69946 D leave the road and head uphill to the mound at V62168 68916 E. From here head almost S to V60681 68190 F and head left along the fence to the summit. 2 hrs +
Track/3566 includes this route but also includes 3 other peaks in a fine circuit.
SW. From the SW park at V63585 65197 G and follow a minor rd and forest track to the W before heading directly for Esknaloughoge and then taking the main Iveragh ridge to the summit [see track/4273]
Track/3406 details the 15k Maughernane Circuit which involves 920m ascent and takes in a lot of interesting, broken ground to the north.
For a much longer walk see track/2495 which is 25.4km long with 1,500m+ ascent.
Views from the top and from vantage pts en route are potentially magnificent both of the nearby peaks, coums and loughs, the coastline and islands of south Kerry and over to Beara.. Linkback:
