Fine views down Kenmare Bay
Short Summary created by thomas_g,  8 Nov 2013
Wonderful views down Kenmare bay on a fine day. Be aware the ground below the summit is very boggy and pools of water abound.
The best access is via the Kerry way from Gowlane (skirt Peakeen to the N). While access is possible from the Molls Gap road via the col between Peakeen W and spot height 525m: there are access issues to Derrygarriff to the west of Peakeen, so the western approach is probably best avoided. There is no real sense in approaching from N (unless you love bog). Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/374/comment/5133/
