Short Summary created by simon3, aidand  17 Jan 2022
Beendarrig is a straightforward climb. The Kerry Way passes close to the summit. Follow the 'yellow man' signs from either the Bridia Valley or from near Lough Acoose. There are wonderful views, so it is well worth doing on a fine day, maybe when you haven't time to climb some of the bigger mountains in the area.
It is also possible to visit two other Beanns in the area: Beann Bhán and Beann Dubh. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/620/comment/5379/
