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.

The walk I did to Corraun Hill and Corraun Hill East Top starts from the Belfarsad bridge. Follow the stone track for around 1.5km. Then turn to your right in direction to Tawnytruffaun Lough. You will then see a steep shoulder. Follow its ridge. When you reach the plateau, turn to southwest to the cairn and the trig point (524m). Go to southeast and when you reach a col, turn to east to reach the East summit (45min-1h). A cairn is waiting for you (541m). Be careful in bad weather, there are some cliffs to the north. From east top, go further with an east direction. You should see a cairn. Turn to northwest 500m before and follow the shoulder. At this point, the main direction is the corner of a forest near Lough Laur. The ground is wet in this area. Walk along the fence and then the east shore of the lough. Continue in a west direction, you should find the rocky track you followed at start few hundred meters after passing north to Lough Nambrackkeagh.
