On the Sheeps Head peninsula.
by TommyV  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.
