Short Summary created by aidand  19 Aug 2020
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.
An alternative route starts from Glanteenassig Lake. This is well signposted off the Tralee - Castlegregory road. Follow the boardwalk along the western side of the lake to where a stream/waterfall descends into the lake. Follow this stream upwards onto the plateau above. Turn right and it's a steady climb up to the summit. I would avoid this route in icy weather. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/42/comment/4802/

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/

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/

A real beauty

I was very lucky to get up here on a clear day, with the eye drawn to the fantastic views to the north and west. The entire Brandon ridge looked to be cloud free, Beenoskee stood majestically above Loch an Coimin and the cairn proved a fine windbreaker for a lunch break.

I approached from the south west, following the track from Anascaul valley up to the plateau in the vicinity of Q 566 067 A, from where I turned north east. The ground is boggy but becomes more rocky as you gain height. Despite the pleasant conditions previous days had been wet and the boggy plateau was considerably waterlogged. Good weatherproofed boots would be advisable when taking this route. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/42/comment/18743/

Approach from northern side
by ahogan  29 Nov 2015
The start point is about a 25 minute drive from Tralee along the coast road towards Castlegregory and passing through Blennerville along the way. About 2km after the turn-off for Castlegregory, there is a forest entrance on the left directly opposite a t-junction at Q6055 1209 C. You can park here and follow the gentle rising gravel path as it winds through the forest (after approx. 1.2km, keep left at the junction) . After 3km, the road comes to an end at a pair of telecom masts. Cross the gate here at Q5980 1081 D and turn south, keeping the wire fence on your left as the gradient gets a bit steeper. When the fence comes to an end at Q5980 1048 E, continue in a southerly direction in order to gain the ridge towards the summit. Note there did not appear to be an obvious route to the ridge from here and there may be a little bit of scrambling required in the last stretch to the ridge. Follow the gently rising ridge to the summit of Stradbally mountain, where the views down to Lough Acummeen and across to Beenoskee open up nicely.
