Three cairns on the summit ridge of Dromavally Mountain are named Cú Chulainn's House, Cú Chulainn's Bed and Cú Chulainn's Grave. It is intriguing that there are several folk-tales about Cú Chulainn recorded on the Dingle Peninsula, far away from his home area in Cooley and SE Ulster. See Knockmulanane for the legend concerning Scál Ní Mhurnáin, Cú Chulainn and the giant. Previously Reamore in MV.   Dromavally Mountain is the 415th highest place in Ireland.

Dromavally is a bump on the sinous ridge from where the N86 crosses the spine of the Dingle Peninsula to the big drop into Anascaul Lough. It has a large megalithic tomb on it.

The photo shows the ridge from Dromavally (left) to Knockakilton on the right. The summit in the background is Stradbally. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/355/comment/3835/

Reached here from Stradbally Mountain & after a few photos, returned by the same route, via the standing stones and cairn at Reamore. Descended towards a small lochan, marked on the map at 581065 A, then stayed high, contouring around above the steep ground, before meeting the track & descending back to the car park at Lough Anscaul.
