To the north: It is possible to start from around V76112 83996 A, which is on a road going past Lough Acoose.
From the south, start at around V77919 81491 B in the Bridia Valley using the Kerry Way via Beendarrig to gain higher ground.
Expect heathery rough ground on all sides.
The views here are much the same as with nearby Beann Dubh with which it will usually be walked. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/577/comment/5336/

Beann Bhan is best taken in along with its colorful neighbours the Binn Dearg (Red Peak) and Beann Dubh (Black Peak) on excursion from Kerry Way from the top of the Bridia path.. Nice views in all directions. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/577/comment/17741/
