The 2 D Mountains to the Pass of Keimaneigh
by jlenny 20 Dec 2010
Climbed Douce recently after almost 30 years...used to do it with the Hillwalking Club at school late 70's early 80's.... I approached it from Inchageela turning left at Creedons and right after the bridge passing the Mass Rock travelling through Toreenalour towards Kealkil for about 8 or 9 miles keeping Left at the fork with the walk sign to the right....This is really an old narrow boreen with grass in the middle...passing through some forestry with access on the right I came to a layby in the middle of nowhere with a Farmhouse just below me in the valley... parking in the layby I set off on the south edge of the forest and followed a fence up onto Douce.......pure amazing with the views down into Bantry Bay even in the bad weather... I decided against the stroll down into the saddle and up onto Dúchoill because of the weather and the fact that I was alone ...literally..... Years ago we used to get a minibus...anything bigger forget it....and set off from here and head over both Douce and Dúchoill and meet the bus again in the Pass of Keimaneigh onn the R584, with Tom Walsh in the North Mon...A Legend! If you want to see Irish Wilderness....look no further........ and only 30 miles from Cork City! Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/530/comment/6174/

mart on Douce Mountain
by mart 9 Mar 2010
There is a private rpad into an area known as the Lost Valley, running from the Ballingeary-Bantry road in to the north of Doughill and Douce and out towards a small road under Shehy Mor. From this road the country is very open and you can make your choice of way onto either mountain or both. Douce presents a steep face to the east but os otherwise welcoming. There is a rocky ridge extending between the two which looks interesting. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/530/comment/4492/
