There is a mapping problem regarding the names of several peaks in this area in that the Irish and English names are not matched up. The Irish version of Derrygarriff is given as Péicín, but this name clearly belongs to Peakeen Mountain. The correct Irish version is Doire Gharbh, which has been assigned (erroneously?) on the 1:25,000 map to the lower peak between Moll's Gap and Lough Barfinnihy.   Derrygarriff is the 595th highest place in Ireland. Derrygarriff is the second most westerly summit in the Mangerton area.

Fine summit, easily reached.
Short Summary created by simon3, Colin Murphy  1 Jun 2018
There are access issues around Moll's Gap, so suggest starting at car park at V882790 A and proceeding up the heathery slopes to Foardal - about 1km to the SE, before walking the 1.5km to the SW to Derrygarriff summit. This will require an ascent of about 200m from col, which is heather, long grass and a boggy in parts.

An alternative is to make Derrygarriff part of a longer walk taking in six tops, starting with Peakeen and ending with Foardal. See entries for these summits for details. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/481/comment/5240/
