The anglicised form Bunnacunneen appears to be a corruption. It would suggest an original Irish name *Bun an Choinín, which would mean 'the end or tail of the rabbit’, but the true name is Binn Uí Chuinneáin, 'Kinnane’s peak’. Walks: for a route to the summit from the SW, see Whilde & Simms, New Irish Walk Guide - West and North, 54-55.   Binn Uí Chuinneáin is the 348th highest place in Ireland.

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 starC 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.
