Tully Mountain is sufficiently detached from the Twelve Bens to offer fine views of the range as a whole, as well as coastal views including Inishbofin, Inishturk, Clare Island and Achill. Also known as Letter Hill [TR]. Walks: a route for this peak is described in New Irish Walk Guides by Tony Whilde and Patrick Simms, p. 44.   Tully Mountain is the highest hill in the West Connemara area and the 1046th highest in Ireland. Tully Mountain is the most northerly summit in the West Connemara area and also the most easterly.

Stunning Scenery
by Damian120  16 Jul 2022
I parked at the pier and if you stroll a couple of hundred metres you'll see a sandy gravel road on your right-hand-side. Follow this going through the gate which brings you to the open plain at the foot of Tully Mountain. It's a nice hike that is not too taxing. The views from the summit are breathtaking, a picture-postcard setting. Inishbofin Island Inishturk Island, Clare Island, Croagh Patrick, Silver Strand, Mweelrea Mountain, Diamond Hill and the north Connemara coastline all merge into one 360 degree sweeping vista.

Tully Mountain/Letter Hill in my opinion has the finest view in Connemara. It is a beautiful walk to do on a good day. You really feel on the edge of the world! Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/893/comment/3462/

I climbed Tully mountain ~140 times during the Cov-19 pandemic. This is my favourite photo! There was low lying cloud, by the time I reached about 200m elevation I was completely above the cloud and could see nearby peaks also emerging. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/893/comment/22144/
