View of Seefin 2nd highest point on the Sheeps Head Peninsula West Cork with Bantry Bay to the right, great views of three peninsulas on a fine day and part of the waymarked Sheeps Head Way. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/905/comment/18776/
Great views of Bantry & Dunmanus Bays
16 Oct 2010
Seefin is easily accessible from a lay by about 1.5km above Kilcrohane. A white statue and cross are located at the saddle between Seefin and the adjacent Caher peak. There is room here for several cars. The peak of Seefin rises to the east. After a fairly level walk of 0.5km or so from the lay by the bulk of the mountain suddenly rises. A small, short gulley must be climbed to proceed. It was wet and muddy on this occasion. From the top of the gulley the way to the summit becomes obvious. From the top, views over Banrty and Dunmanus Bays are your reward. Directly west is the peak of Caher mountain which is an easier climb than Seefin. I climbed both the same afternoon.

A template for waymarked walking?
12 Aug 2014
We did a linear walk over Seefin and Gouladane from the car park at A (V836 381), taking the excellently way-marked route (Seefin Loop) to the top of Seefin and along the ridge all the way to the car park on the far side of Glan Lough at B (V891 430). The ground conditions were good on account of recent dry weather and the views over the Beara Peninsula, from Knokowen to Dursey Island are spectacular. The waymarking is the best I have seen anywhere in Ireland and although, not desirable or appropriate in all walking locations, it should operate as a template for areas looking to attract more visitors where private land considerations need to be balanced with recreational access.

On the Sheeps Head peninsula.
2 Nov 2018
Seefin is the highest point on the Sheeps Head peninsula and quite easy to get to. From the village of Kilcrohane, there is a road called the Goat's Path that you can drive all the way up to a parking spot mentioned by garreettd. Seefin summit is only about a kilometer from here. There is a fairly obvious path leading North East over towards the summit for the first 500 meters with a small climb after this. Great views of the three Cork peninsulas from here.
