Walking from Coumaraglin to Seefin on 16/5/2004 I took this photo of the standing stone at the Barrnamadra Gap. Linkback:

The tourist route via Araglin
by thomas_g  17 Mar 2012
Parked at S25404 04977 A (room for 3-4 cars). From here there is a track all the way to the top with decent views once you clear the trees: this track is not shown on the 2003 version of OSI 75. One warning if you're approaching from Coum bridge as of Mar 2012 the road between Kilbryan Lower and the start is in a bad way, so if you've got a nice car approach from the west instead.
It's a bit of a slog from where the trees thin out but the advantage with this route is that it's accessible regardless of the weather and is a nice easy start to any of the three ridge walks that are possible from the summit.
Two walks from here that are on my to-do list are:
1. south from the summit via Bearnanmaddra gap on to Far Breaga, possibly leave the a second car at S271017 B, then up Crouhan to admire the lovely views of Dungarvan bay.
2. North to the clearly defined ridge with spot heights of 650,611 and 555, then across to Tooreen, then Milk Hill and back to the 2nd car parked near S243094 C. Linkback:

I climbed this mountain as part of the 2005 comeragh crossing. Being out of shape I started at stage 2 in the Nire valley and made my way with an excellent group of people up to Coumfea West Top where we stopped for a bite to eat and caught glimpses of the lakes below as gaps in the cloud blew past intermittantly. From here we continued around the corrie before striking out for Seefin as shown in the attached visualisation. As part of a very well organised walk we were greeted on top of Seefin with energy drinks and flapjacks. Brilliant! Linkback:

Picture: a freezing seefin
seefin during the big freeze
by kirky  16 Apr 2010
i climbed seefin during the big freeze and it took two attempts as 1st time the roads around seefin were completely frozen over the 2nd time i went was a day after we had very heavy snow and only just managed to get there by car to the gate at the very end of the wood where i parked up. made my way up and higher i got the deeper the snow and fog. when the forest finishes the views get better with the baranmadra gap and comeraglin in full view to the right and to the left the knockmealdowns. the snow as extremely deep and i found the trek up very difficult due to the conditions but once i got there it was worth it . seefin is a proper summit with fantastic 360 views and luckily for me the hut was open so i got a break from the elements for 10 mins before i made my way back down . took about under 2 hours up and one hour back. well worth it. hard to locate where to park though. sorry for lack of grid refs .

Due to the topography and the prevailing winds usually coming from SW, the wind tends to funnel through the Barrnamadra Gap, however the winds around the Seefin area on the day of the Comeragh Crossing were exceptional, especially for July. Linkback:
