Beautiful

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! Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/365/comment/18504/

Well out of the way!
by TommyV  2 Nov 2018
From the North of the mountain there is room to squeeze one car in at W15274 62040 A. There is a farm track across the road running South to Lough na MBreac Dearg, which is the highlight of this hike. After the lake the terrain becomes a bit more tussocky and heathery all the way to the unremarkable summit, which is marked by a few sticks. Please note the route we took was during an epic heatwave and I believe this may be very wet under normal Irish weather conditions so perhaps sticking a bit further left from the lake and handrail the fence might be wiser.
