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 671st highest place in Ireland.

Trivial climb, great views, excessive religion.
Short Summary created by simon3, scapania  7 Jul 2016
A very easy walk, and a bit of a cheat, but a great place to catch a magical Achill sunset. Follow the signposts for the summit from the Achill Sound to Keel road and park on top of the ridge beside the masts at F670 027 A. Follow the easy broad ridge for about a kilometre until the summit is reached. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/561/comment/5320/
