A short reward
by TommyV  24 Jun 2019
I tackled Bunnacunneen from the West which is a short, steep, direct climb to the summit.There is room to park at L92734 58016 A for one car. From here hop the fence and handrail the stream for the first part of the hike. After the stream veer slightly South East and a fence will lead you to the summit. As this mountain lies on the Easten end of Connemara you get to experience views not only of all the Connemara mountain ranges but also Lough Nafoey, Lough Corrib and Lough Mask and the contrasting flatter plains of Galway and Mayo.

This is a lovely walk particularly for if you are bringing children (age 13 & 10 ) as the views of mountains to be climbed is spectacular . We climbed it on the 30th Dec and despite the continuous rain it was particularly dry underfoot and the temptation do do the circut was high but time was against us.

Joyce Country Challenge
by Patsy  3 Jul 2014
Excellent review Onzy, and very timely. The local hill walking group, (Lake District HWC) are organising the Joyce Country Challenge on Saturday July 19th. The Bunnacunneen circuit is a led walk that day and suitable for those with moderate hillwalking experience. Teh A walk is self-navigating and takes in Maamtrasna and the Devil’s Mother.
