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 416th highest place in Ireland.

Giving Huge Rewards!
by CaptainVertigo  23 Aug 2014
Dromavally Mountain is a modest 552m, and is overshadowed by larger neighbours, but it offers great rewards for relatively small effort. It benefits from a broad ridge which offers magnificent views in all directions. The photo shows the view to the north from Dromavally, across the beautiful Glanteenassig, to Stradbally. It is an area of forests, lakes, cliffs and scree. Well worth a walk. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/355/comment/17632/
