Short Summary created by aidand  24 Sep 2012
There is parking for about 6 cars at Lough Annascaul. Start by following the roadway up the valley until it peters out in the bog above. From here head NE initially across bog and then continuing NE gradually ascend the southern slopes of Beenoskee, but actually heading for the neighbouring Stradbally Mountain. You will eventually reach a fence which will lead you up to the summit of Stradbally Mountain and its impressive views. From here it is a 10 minute walk west to the top of Beenoskee. Beware there are major cliffs on the northern side of this ridge. From Beenoskee you can descend SW and pick up the track back down to Lough Annascaul. Allow about 5 hours.

There's a handy and relatively gradual ridge leading to the top of Stradbally going NE from its top. For much of the way there is a fence along the middle of the ridge and beside the ridge we saw this fine, misty view. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/42/comment/3842/

The Munster Jersey near the peak of Stradbally was erected, by his loyal friends, in memory of a fine young Limerick man, Donald Earlie, who died suddenly (aged 22) in January 2004.
Update Saturday 1 July 2006 - Don's friends made their annual visit to the top of Stradbally and replaced the now tattered Munster flag with an Irish flag. Around the flag pole are the remains of the prayer flags which were brought from Everest Base Camp by Michael C and put up during Summer 2005. Update September 2007 - Don's friends replaced the Munster flag with a Limerick flag this Summer. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/42/comment/2420/

The view rocks!
by Colin Murphy  2 Nov 2015
Having come along the three summit ridge to the west, it was nice to finish on a relatively easy one. The ascent from the col with Benoskee is a just 50m and quite gentle. It is an extremely rocky summit so care is required not to twist an ankle! As with all the tops on the ridge, it offers wonderful views. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/42/comment/18384/
