The cliffs of Minaun are spectacular when viewed from Keel. They offer a popular launch site for hang-gliding. The summit is a magnificent viewpoint, giving a surprisingly broad view of all of Achill and much of West Mayo, considering its moderate height. For a walk to the TV mast on Minaun, see Siúlóidí Acla, walk K. The summit is a little further on. Sometimes spelt Menawn.   Minaun is the 670th highest place in Ireland.

Drove up to the TV masts before making my way to the summit which is farther than it looks, its about a half an hour there and back, the views of the island are amazing, giving a complete 360 panorama Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/561/comment/2992/
