After another truly awful day of rain and visits to pottery shops, a brief clear spell presented itself in early evening, giving enough time for a quick ascent of Cruach Mharthain. Parked by the Mast (lots of space) at 340015 D, and walked towards the fence (gap to squeeze through), and followed the fence up hill to the summit.

Superb views all around and only 25 mins to the summit, with the next band of rain & mist hurtling towards us we legged it back to the car and made for Curran's Pub in Dingle for some good Guinness. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/813/comment/4118/
