Knockmore is the highest peak on Clare Island. Of all the Irish islands, only Achill has higher mountains than Clare. Walks: for a route taking in Bengorm, Corranabinnia and Glennamong, see Whilde & Simms, New Irish Walk Guide - West and North, 74-75. According to this source, the hill is also known as Croaghmore.   Knockmore is the 684th highest place in Ireland. Knockmore is the second most southerly summit in the Achill & Corraun area.

New Comment: Will you meet me on Clare Island.
by TommyV  Tue 9 Aug
Of all the islands in Ireland that you need a boat to actually get to, Clare Island boasts the highest point in Knockmore. We decided to do a loop of the island heading West along the main road, stopping at Clare Island Abbey. The main road eventually peters out into a farm track and around this stage is a good point to start the steep climb East for Knockmore. We had planned to continue along by the cliffs from Knockmore over to the lighthouse but abandoned this due to heavy fog on our route. We instead dropped down to join the Knocknaveen loop and headed back to Sailors Bar for some refreshments. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/571/comment/23598/
