TrebleRed on Shehy More, 2006

I have been wondering why Sheehy Mor wasnt on the site for a while! I can see 'Carrigmount' from my kitchen window, its an impressive view. I have climbed it once with the Dunmanway walkers. We went a different route to that mentioned elsewhere. From the Bantry line follow the signs for 'Riding'. This leads eventually to a small farm with a stable of horses. With their permission you can head up a boggy track towards the lake and beyond. The other route sounds better to be honest. Lovely views at the top as mentioned of all of South West Cork and up towards Kerry too. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/365/comment/2322/

Loop Walk taking 6.5 hrs including Douce and Doughil
by Cobhclimber  1 Jan 2015
Shehy More plus others
Round Walk including Shehy More 546m, SM west top, Douce 476m, Doughill 471m.
Total distance 15.2 Km, total ascent 643m, these calculated, time taken 6.5 hrs.
Car at W153 621 A, Walk up grit track to Lough Nambrackderg and on to Shehy More W152 600 B through long grass with hidden hummocks. Lovely views N to Paps, W to Bantry Bay. Continue west over to Shehy More SW top. Drop down to the road at W131604 C, through bog, tracks and fields and head up a nice climb to Douce. Continue on rougher terrain to Doughill. I went east from here down to farm road at about W123633 D (marked as a normal road on my map), not a good idea, steep and very rough ground. Better to loop around, maybe to north first. Walk back out road back to car. This last took about 1hr 10mins. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/365/comment/17783/

At Long Last!
by SpiritOf84  10 Jul 2015
I have been visiting Shehy More for as long as I can remember. My dad loved to fish Lough Nambrackderg and we'd make the trip from Cork City almost on a weekly basis during the Summers of my youth. We never went further than the lake back then but last week I fulfilled the ambition of a ten-year-old me and climbed to the summit.

It's a straight-forward climb, parking at W15234 62101 E and taking the track to the lake (20 mins). Although not this time, it's often you'd meet the farmer who is very friendly and doesn't seem to have any issues with allowing access. With so many happy childhood memories of the lake, I delayed a little here to enjoy this very special place. The route to the summit took me around the east side of the lake and I continued my ascent south to the ridge, where a fence led me to the summit. Halfway up to the ridge it plateaus a little and care is needed here as it gets very boggy and there is a small hidden stream to cross. Apart from that there are a couple of fences to negotiate, but that's about the height of the challenge!

The views on the day were stunning! I was amazed to be able to see right down into Bantry Bay and Whiddy Island to the west. Douce and Doughill sit to the north and the Paps can be seen beyond. Mullaghanish with its transmitter is clear to the north-east. Lunch at the top before following the same route back to the car.

With no rush and plenty of stops to take in the scenery it took about an hour from car to summit and about 40 minutes to return. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/365/comment/18178/

Beautiful
by NiniC  26 Apr 2016
Absolutely delighted to have finally got to the summit of Shehy More.

The views from the top are breathtaking and the walk to get there is relatively easy. Wet and boggy but not a hard climb at all. I think it took us about 2.15hrs to get from point A on the map to summit and return with lots of stops to take in the views.

You leave the car in a lay by at the road head up the track, it splits at one stage and you head to the left, through and over a couple of gates and you reach the lake. We then headed as recommended around the east of the lake and up to the top.

Enjoy if you go! Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/365/comment/18504/
