An even quicker ascent than Carrigalougha
by three5four0  15 Aug 2010
Combined Mweelin with Carrigalougha, after an afternoon in Kenmare avoiding heavy down pours. Needless to say after 5 mins, starting the route posted by John Desmond, I and my wife were soaked to the skin with the only views available being that of our boots, as we tramped up the track!

The 2 hills combined give around 1 hours walk, so very suitable for a late evening walk after tea, if you happen to be near by. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/493/comment/6013/
