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 476th highest in Ireland.

Two summits one hike.

Nothing to add to the directions provided by melohara. Just to mention two things, the parking place was littered with close to a hundred empty beer cans, it looks like there was a party there or something. The good news is that the boardwalk is completed which is just as well as it goes over some of the worst flooded boggy ground I have seen. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/397/comment/20416/
