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 478th highest in Ireland.

Bog and rough ground.
Short Summary created by melohara, paddyhillsbagger, jackill,  18 Jan 2017
Car park space at R66276 16811 A. Over or around the gate and head uphill on a good track that crosses the hill near the summit of Seefin Mountain East top.
Follow the track on downhill from the crest and as it flattens out look for a rough, worn track to your left to Seefins summit.
In January 2017 there was work in progress on new boardwalk crossing some of the boggy patches. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/397/comment/5156/
