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.

The most distinctive features of this mountain are the three ancient cairns on the summit ridge known as Cú Chulainn's House, Cú Chulainn's Bed and Cú Chulainn's Grave. In this view, it is the mountain to the left. Anascaul Lake is seen below. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/355/comment/757/
