Rewarding second visit
by Colin Murphy  4 Dec 2017
This was my second visit to Peakeen, the first being about 7 years ago on a beautiful summer's day, this one on a possibly even more beautiful winter's day. It's a very fine mountain with a rocky/grassy, well-defined summit and scenery you could eat. We approached from the SE along the Kerry Way and then directly up the steep eastern slope. (See short summary for details) With good going underfoot, it took just an hour and 15 minutes to reach the summit. Spectacular views in all directions and the winter light added to the sense of beauty. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/348/comment/19800/
