Beann (approximate pronunciation: byown, rhyming with down) is most often climbed in combination with Mullaghanattin as part of a circuit of the Pocket. Despite being unnamed on the Discovery map, it is nearly as high as its neighbour and has several satellites of its own. The ridge extending to the south-west towards Finnararagh is among the most wild and solitary routes in Ireland.   Beann is the 76th highest place in Ireland.

Uninspiring ridge top with great views.
Short Summary created by simon3, Colin Murphy,  20 Nov 2015
Beann is often done as part of the Mullaghanattin Horseshoe - see comments for An Cnoc Riabach and Mullaghanattin etc for access. Approaching from Beann NE, the ascent from the col is about 90M, and not excessively steep. The summit is quite unremarkable - a fence running across it, a clump slightly elevated grass topped by a couple of rocks.
It is also possible to reach Beann from the vicinity of Cloon Lake. Be aware of the following:
Maurice Breen, who farms at the northern end of Cloon Lake in Co. Kerry has asked if walkers planning to ascend from that point could so by following the stream at V708783 A up the hill. Please do not ascend from the northern end of the lake (V709788 B), or the farm track at (V708785 C), as both these routes involve a number of fence crossings. Maurice has had problems in the past with damage to his fences, he is happy to have walkers on his land, as long as people act responsibly. Info via Mountaineering Ireland Nov 2015.
