Climbed Mweelrea this Summer - same climb as prev photo, but rather misty at the top (see pic 2 & comment 3 for well.. the rather murky wet top!)
Note: We did find the sheep near the summit to be a bit annoying, as things were getting rather steep, yet these animals just run by you like nothing's the matter?!?!?! Gas really!

Good place to test yourself out, a great climbing effort is needed from the Ramp side of the climb, a huge effort is needed to get over this ramp, the rest of it to the summit is easy compared to what came before. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/34/comment/970/

went up and down via doo lough, the ramp and ben bury on the 3rd of june, a very hot day and despite plenty of suncream got well sunburnt, views were incredible, met a number of climbers / walkers from kerry at the top, wondering whether it really was the top of brandon that they could see in the distance ?, just about 5 hours up and down, a nice leisurely accent, just the way it should be Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/34/comment/2404/
