Ó Cíobháin gives Beann, 'peak', as the true name of this mountain. Apparently the name Bruach na Binne really belonged to a feature a few miles to the W overlooking the Bridia Valley and was mistakenly applied to this peak by the sappers.   Broaghnabinnia is the 83rd highest place in Ireland. Broaghnabinnia is the most northerly summit in the Dunkerron Mountains area.

Isolated, steep-sided flat top with incredible views.
Short Summary created by markmjcampion, Peter Walker, simon3, Colin Murphy, jackill  31 Aug 2023
The remote Broaghnabinnia lies at the head of the Black Valley just S of the Reeks. It’s steep on all sides and visitors should be comfortable with scrambling. It provides great views of Carrauntoohil and other reeks as well as the Glenbeigh hills and local valleys.

E. [PLEASE NOTE: there are major access issues with approaches from Black Valley side. These are still ongoing as of Feb 2023 so best to skip the rest of this paragraph for now.] Park at V81683 82224 starA, walk back over bridge, enter farm gate on right and follow rough track at NW side of Lough Reagh to V81094 80443 starB. From here go up thru boulders to the summit or swing around first to the col at V80078 80710 starC - a slightly easier ascent. 2hrs

From here B is often combined with Stumpa Dulaigh in a v fine horseshoe walk. 2hrs

W. There is limited parking in the vicinity of V78342 81529 starD. Walk to the end of the road and take the track to the S, leaving it when you cross the stream. Then head for approx. V79186 81107 starE and climb the steep nose to the summit. 2hrs

N. Park at V81683 82224 starA and go W along Kerry Way for 500m. Where track turns right, enter a grassy field on left and drop to the Cummeenduff River. Cross fence and river and walk/scramble S up steep grassy slope. At V81001 81599 starF swing SE to point V81267 81463 starG and head roughly W onto the broad E-W summit area. The top is grassy, flat and marked only by a fence post. 2hrs+

Notable tracks - track/3080 and the epic track/4395 both currently proscribed. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/80/comment/4840/
