The large peninsula, which is very nearly an island, lying between Achill and the mainland of Mayo is called Corraun (Ir. Corrán Acla, 'sickle of Achill'). The name may refer to the shape of this hill or perhaps to the promontory Gubnahardia, near which the village of Corraun is situated. Corraun is part of the parish of Achill. For a walk on the S slopes of Corraun Hill, see Siúlóidí Acla, walk M.   Corraun Hill is the 492nd highest place in Ireland.

Climbed Corraun Hill in mixed weather conditions. The views are excellent from the top of Corraun with Clare Island to the Southwest, Clew Bay to the South,Achill directly west and Black sod bay to the North. It a good all round walk, not too difficult but plenty of cliffs to peer over. Ascent can be made up the spur to the east of Lough Cullydoo. The area is quite boggy here. Take care in bad visibility.
