The name of Torc Mountain, like Mount Eagle and the Wolf's Step on the Dingle Peninsula, reminds us of a wild animal once common in the forests of Ireland. Wild boar is significant in Celtic mythology, being depicted on Celtic artefacts found in continental Europe, Ireland and Britain. It represents physical strength and heroic fighting skills.   Torc Mountain is the 459th highest place in Ireland. Torc Mountain is the most northerly summit in the Mangerton area.

A nice introduction to hiking before taking on the big boys.

Nothing additional to add to the directions provided by Colin Murphy. Spectacular views over Killarney National Park. The mix trail of gravel and boardwalk make this a relatively easy hike and a good introduction for those with lesser experience looking to get out and about.
