MountainViews.ie Picture about mountain <i>Cnoc na Bánóige</i>  in area Central Dingle, Ireland
Picture: View from Knockmulanane
 
Ridge summit with some cliffs and great views.
Short Summary created by simon3, Colin Murphy, jackill  23 Jan 2022
From the west: Start from the car park at the Connor pass Q49054 05587 starA .
Cross the main road and head due east uphill following a distinct track for 200 meters, then keep east and had for An Cnapán Mór and then to Cnoc na Bánóige
From the east: start from the car park beside Lough Annascaul Q58253 05092 starB and ascend directly up the steep eastern slope. This becomes tricky around 400m elevation when you must ascend through a narrow gully which involves some climbing - and a warning - this can be a little dangerous in wet conditions. After that continue directly west for about 500m to reach Knockmulanane and then a further 2km west takes you to the summit, marked by a cairn. The terrain is a mixture of grass and heather and quite uneven. 2.5 hours car to summit.
The views from this ridge are spectacular both to Dingle Bay to the south and the high isolated plateau of Central Dingle. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/207/comment/4967/
