Bedrock type: Granite granophyre, (Mourne Mountains granite)

One of the most recognisible peaks of Mourne and perhaps the only one that necessitates removing hands from pockets. Slieve Bernagh gets its name from the two rocky granite tors which crown the summit and the gap or saddle betweeen them.   Slieve Bearnagh is the 85th highest place in Ireland.

Bearnagh, Donard, Commedagh
by Bunsen7  3 Oct 2016
We climbed Bearnagh on Sat 1 Oct 2016 as part of a loop starting off Trassey Road near Meelmore Lodge. We turned into the valley on the north side of Bearnagh and approached Bearnagh from the west, before descending to the Hare's gap, and following the Brandy pad towards Donard. Having summitted Donard we headed up Commedagh and along the wall back to the Hare's gap where we descended back to the car park.

A well traversed route with defined paths which is not particularly difficult to navigate, however (here comes the "but" part), it is a tiring outing and when approaching Bearnagh from the north west be mindful that the path which initially stretches south and away from the wall at Poulaphuca does not revert to the wall. Having followed this easy-going route too far south we scrambled up to found ourselves at the base of the summit Tor. So just stay tight to the wall!

Further details on this 18km loop can be found at the below site. First time in the Mournes and I think this walk gave me a good idea of the place. Well worth a visit.
