The association with Fionn Mac Cumhaill is reinforced by the fact that Seefin Mountain overlooks a valley named after his son: Glenosheen (Ir. Gleann Oisín, 'valley of Oisín').   Seefin Mountain W Top is the highest mountain in the Ballyhoura Mountains area and the 477th highest in Ireland.

A frequent walk for us
by paddyobpc  25 Jan 2017
We have climbed Seefin Mountain (#SeefinMountain528m) on many occasions, mostly from the car park referenced by madfrankie and marked A on the map. If Seefin Mountain W Top is your destination, walk uphill from point A on the clear track to the crest, passing off the path on the right for Seefin Mountain E Top, instead continuing on your track and heading downhill again for a short while. To reach the Summit (Seefin Mountain W Top) you must then head left across the bog with a small climb towards the end to reach the trig. NOTE that the boggy section is very boggy at the moment but it looks like it is going to get some boardwalk help in the near future. Dillon(dillonkdy) and myself climbed to the trig using this route on 24th and 30th of Dec 2016 scoring points for gribboneer-of-the-year http://www.highpointireland.com/gribboneer-of-the-year.html . We measured a height gain of about 275m on this route, about 5 Km up and back over a leisurely 1.5 Hours. We also visited Seefin Mountain E Top on both occasions with just a few minutes detour. This area can also be visited while walking the Blackrock Loop.
