Picture: Rounded Nareera to the right
 
A road runs through it
Short Summary created by jackill  30 Jul 2012
Park on the roadside at V91700 54569 starA and follow the Beara Way on a well marked track through the woods for 4.5 kms before the climb up the back of the valley under the Sugarloaf. The Beara way is shown by a series of yellow posts up to and past Lough Tobernavaha. Just past the lake the track begins to climb again slightly , as you approach Logh Keel turn north and climb the rounded face of Nareera to the summit.
The summit is a series of rocky shelves jutting sideways from the heather. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/394/comment/5153/

Picture: Nareera Sugarloaf Circuit
What a circuit!!
by muddyboots  2 Jan 2017
The addition of Arderin Begs makes this circuit of the six mountains of Nareera and Sugarloaf a classic. Park at V84938 51177 starB (room max for 2 cars) and follow the track up onto the mountain. Work your way on Nareera's SW Top then Nareera itself (the Beara way passes between the two) and, yes it is worth it go the extra 1/2 hour to climb Nareera's North Top, a small crest above a beautiful mountain lake. There is a small gap between Nareera and an unnamed peak. Then walk back the same route - i dont think its worth trying to drop down and work around the Sugarloaf Far West. Regain the Beara way and walk around fabulous lake and on to the Sugarloafs. Total for all six summits is 10.3 km taking 3.45-4 hrs. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/394/comment/18771/

This picture is taken from the west end of Lough Keel, around 400m SW of Nareeva. All the complicated land west of Sugarloaf is apparently simplified into a ridge from this viewpoint. To the left is Nareeva, to the centre is Toberavanaha (west and probably higher) top, then the east top of Toberavanaha while peeping around the side of Toberavanaha is Sugarloaf hill far to the right. Hopefully someone will retake this picture on a day where some sun brings out the texture and shape of the land better.

You can reach Nareeva from the west if you want, though you will need to ask permission from the landowners at a house somewhere near V844 531 starC. We asked and had a very pleasant reception, though in the end we approached from Sugarloaf. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/394/comment/521/

In Richard Mersey’s [The Hills of Cork & Kerry] there is a description of “ Sugarloaf Traverse” starting, naturally enough, from Sugarloaf. “But from the top westwards .. is as tough as anything in Beara. Many a cliff and gully bar your progress, and as your swing north the Caha lakes force you into more extensive diversions.” Nareeva is at the start of this area. While relatively tame itself, Richard Mersey describes the area north of it “This must be the wildest part of Beara”. Certainly, looking at the map the multiplicity of small lakes known as “Caha Lakes” must be testing to navigate through. Great place for a night assessment. Must go back.

A long walk in
by thomas_g  29 Jul 2012
Unfortunately it looks like the access at V91465 53888 starD isn't an option any more - there are multiple no access signs and the gate is covered in barbed wire, just in case you didn't get the hint from the signs. As an alternative I parked on the roadside at V91700 54569 starA (1 car) and followed the old Beara Way towards Sugarloaf (which is visible from miles away), which joins up with the track described by Jackill.

Worthwhile peak via an obvious (SW) ridgeline.
by Superterence  3 Oct 2023
Parked at Mass Mount Church (a ruin with roadside parking) crossroads at V824 506 starE.
Walked East, about 100m or so, to a fence end. Up onto the ridgeline. Rough enough though long grass,boggy sections & waist high gorse. But worth the effort. You can walk along the Beara Way when you meet it or stay on the ridge. Lough Keel..... Infinity Pool amazing. Nareera is a wild and worthy peak.

Turned North. Truly wonderful features, formations, streams, rocks, troughs, slabs, lakes. Hiked around to Glenkeel Lough. Descended via the track. Turns in and about. Takes you down to farm (via water scheme road.....So no yards, fields, farms or livestock disturbed. Track turns to tarmac. Long enough walk, via a small rolling road, back to the car.

Great hike. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/394/comment/24014/
