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 1040th highest place in Ireland.

A gem on the fringes of Connemara.
by TommyV  5 Nov 2018
As Tully Mountain is isolated from the rest of the peaks in Connemara it offers probably the best views of Mweelrea and the Twelve Bens that you are likely to see. A few hundred metres past Derryherbert Quay, there is room to park a few cars near a farm track at L68457 59975 A. Follow this farm track for about 50 meters and you will see a gate on a height to the left. This will give you access to the mountain. From here it's a straight forward climb North West for less than 2 kilometers to the trig point at the summit. Fantastic VIews to rival that of it's bigger neighbours.
