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 518th highest in Ireland.

No summit view

Climbed this hill from point A in the summary. At first we took the zig-zags but they were quite waterlogged and unstable so we retreated and took the track instead.This was also quite soggy in places but not nearly as precarious as I had our daughter in a back carrier. Unfortunately cloud descended and we hiked the last 100 meters in full mist which did not clear even for a moment on the summit. The views over the Blaskets must be really great so we'll just have to return for that one. There view north east toward the Brandon group was pretty impressive for a while though, such a beautiful massif generally. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/419/comment/20873/
