Perhaps you are resting between major days of climbing, perhaps you are looking for a great place to find a Kerry view. Whatever, I would recommend you try the walk to Moanlaur from the East. It's not far but it has great views. One place to park and start is from the Aughils to Camp road where there is a little parking, for example at CahCon Rt (Q71601 05001)
Going South to North this road goes up the gentle side of a scarp. The north side has a steep face which continues west into the corrie valley cut into the (inevitable) north east corner of Knockbrack 459m, the eastern end of the ridge leading to Moanlaur. Walk along this for interesting views into the valley known as Coumastabla which appears to have considerable mine workings.
Richard Mersey [The Hills of Cork & Kerry 1987] is the only guidebook I could find mentioning this walk. He said "It [the walk] is, simply, the traverse of the western Slieve Mish, that is Knockbrack, Moanlaur, Knockmore and trig. point 1,584."
Moanlaur is reached across boggy more or less trackless terrain although as of 2005 there was some fencing which conveniently had fallen down at its nearest point to the summit probably because the posts of the fence had come loose in the soft ground. Not surprising since Moanlaur's name is about bog - Moanlaur means Middle Bog.
The picture shows Moanlaur on a windy December day from Knockbrack. Note the extreme green of the ground near the camera. It's not grass, it's moss. In a lot of places, including the summit of Moanlaur, the heather is often partly or fully replaced by moss. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/332/comment/2125/
