Sauce Creek is derived from Irish sás, 'noose', a name referring to the fact that waves and currents make it very difficult to leave this cove by boat.   Faill an tSáis is the 795th highest place in Ireland. Faill an tSáis is the most northerly summit and also the most easterly in the Brandon Group area.

Nice hike to Sais Creek
by tommyhogan  23 Mar 2011
Climbed to Sais/Sass Creek viewpoint on 22/03/11. Parked in Brandon village & seems to be a new looped walk from the pier to the top of Brandon head, across to Sais & back down via a bog road via the Dingle way. Road & trail generally in very good condition with only 1 or 2 wet patches but it had been dry for days so that would be a big benefit. Excellent views across Brandon & also options to press on from there towards Brandon itself but you'd need a lot more than the 3 hours approx we had.
Also note that the new trail is not marked on any maps including the OS Brandon map, & no info boards anywhere to suggest how long it is so must be new enough. Very well marked once you start though & easy to follow even on the open hill-top. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/694/comment/6283/
