Notes on name: Whilst the origin of this unusual name, along with Bweengduff, is unclear, they are almost certainly related to the nearby settlement of Bweeng (Ir. Na Boinn) and the townlands of Beennamweel East and West. One possibility is that Boinn is a corruption of Ir. muing, ‘rushy area’, and this explanation would fit well with its application to an upland areas of moderate height in Bweeng Little and Bweengduff.

jackill on Bweengduff
by jackill 26 Aug 2009
Tis an awful affliction bagging hills. Worse again is bagging hills under 500 meters because you stupidly tell yourself , "ah sure I'll get 4 or 5" and end up crippled by distance and drowned by bogwater. Such is the case with trying the Bweengs and Mount Hillary on the same day.
Anyway Bweengduff is reached from the road at GlHareeE WdN (W46444 88741) by following the Duhallow way (and don't take shortcuts unless you like swimming!) and hanging a left and then a right to the most mast adorned summit in Ireland. Linkback:

Giovanni Agnelli would not be proud!
by eamonoc 17 May 2015
I started my ascent of Bweengduff and Bweeng little from A (W46004 91412), was able to drive to this point elevation
of 254mts, just followed good track all the way to Summit area. Was more than dissapointed with what I discovered
behind one of the mast enclosures. A fiat car that was maybe stolen or not! and driven up to Bweengduff and dumped
what a sad sight, after the Bullets on Newtown Hill, the open dump on Coolnahau Hill and now the scrapyard of Bweengduff
I wonder what next. Some sad people out there! Linkback:

Enjoyable Walk !
by damomac 24 Jun 2016
Nice handy walk on good roadway which has recently been upgraded to facilitate installation of more wind turbines. Park at forest entrance and it's approx 3km to the telecommunication masts. For a more challenging walk, loop around Bweeng Little and continue on down to Laharn Cross (6km from car). Do it on a sunday evening and you might take in some irish dancing (

Turn right at the cross roads and after 200 meters take the next gravel road on right and this will take you back to the masts. Parts of this are a good workout but the path surface is very good. Continue past the masts and back to the car for a 13.3km walk which can take 2 hrs 45 mins. Good mobile phone coverage throughout all the walk.

The Fiat Punto is still there, now minus it's engine ! Linkback:

easy hill close to cork
by petercrowley 24 Aug 2013
my first hill was an easy one, actually cycled up to it before i realised it was high point. a good starter, hard core road all the way to the top. lots of masts at the top but a short trip across to bweeng little will give you better scenery. Linkback:

The Shiddy Way?
by Colin Murphy 17 Mar 2023
This isn't a particularly interesting hill, although after a prolonged rainy period, I did see multiple gushing streams on my walk, some of them having flooded sections of the forest track. There is also now a relatively new sign next to the trig pillar saying that the track is part of The Shiddy Way, although I can find no information about this online, so have no idea where it starts and ends.
