Mount Eagle is the final up-thrust of the Dingle Peninsula, its seaward flanks descending steeply to Slea Head and Dunmore Head (the most westerly point of the Irish mainland), but the islands of the Great Blasket, Inishnabro and Inishvickillane are the partly submerged continuation of the same mountain range. Mount Eagle Lough nestles high in a hollow on the eastern flank. Along the southern slopes in the townlands of Fahan and Glenfahan are the promontory fort of Dunbeg and the remains of a monastic settlement consisting of beehive huts. By comparison, the featureless summit holds little interest except for the spectacular view of West Kerry's Atlantic coast.   Sliabh an Iolair is the highest mountain in the Dingle West area and the 483rd highest in Ireland.

High point over Slea Head

Mount Eagle is easily climbed from the east, beginning around Q352 003 A. From here there is a track most of the way to the summit, albeit detouring to the north a bit. Views to the Blaskets are exceptional. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/419/comment/17958/
