Short Summary created by Peter Walker,  14 Jun 2012
An Bhinn Dubh is almost certainly the easiest top on the entire Dingle peninsula. The first bump on the huge sickle-shaped ridge linking the Connor Pass to Brandon, its ascent can be accomplished in a matter of minutes. Start from the car park at the top of the pass 491056 A and plod up the wide and gently-inclined track heading west for about 700m to the summit (a little way past a conspicuous cairn). The immediate environs are unexceptional but the views are very good.

If not pressed for time continuing at least as far as Ballysitteragh is recommended. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/521/comment/5280/
