Located on southern boundary of Glennahoo townland. The location of this feature looks odd on the Discovery map but on the 1/2 inch map it is the lower peak which directly overlooks Maghanaboe and An Seabhac's description confirms this: binn árd cnuic ar an dteorainn theas [Glennahoo townland]. Anglicised name appears on ½ inch map.   Beenatoor is the 312th highest place in Ireland.

Easter Saturday'05started here for me, after a really good Good Friday on Brandon Ridge. Parking clear of the bend on the Conor Pass road at 544 101 A head up the Glenahoo road, leaving it at the gate around 546 098 B to ascend the flank of the glen on a steep track which attains the ridge about 400m. Stay near the western edge for a splendid view across Beenbo toward Slieveanea and Dingle Bay beyond. Visiting Coombaun I would commend only to dedicated '600' baggers. Best to ascend Beenoskee directly or detour over Glaneteentassig north. Cross the fence edging this for a memorable sidelong view over rocky buttresses toward An Duloch. As you head for Stradbally top you will note a commemorative banner about 100 metres to the east., erected by the friends of Donald Earlie, who died aged 22 imn January 2004. Beenoskee can than be reached from the east , descending steeply northward to the lake,where photo fans who haven't left their apparatus 200 miles away might get a fine panorama of both tops. A return to the start can be made from here , those with two cars may find Tomasin's in Stradbally a compelling feature of the homeward view. One of the higher points of a a great weekend.
