MountainViews.ie Picture about mountain Seefingan (<i>Suí Fingain</i>) in area Dublin, Ireland
Picture: Seefingan from the north ridge.
 
Boggy cairned summit with some views and uses in routes.
Short Summary created by simon3  19 Mar 2015
Seefingan sits at the meeting of three boggy ridges: Corrig to the North, Seefin to SW and Kippure to the East. The route to Kippure can be particularly boggy after rain. Around 400m west of the summit is an impressive collapsed megalithic tomb. A particular hazard here is that to the NW of top is Kilbride Camp with actively used rifle range. Shown on the OS 1:50k, OSM maps (but not the OSI 1:10k, as on MV) this should be avoided.

Usually Seefingan would be reached at part of a longer walk for example starting from O0656 1666 A, going over Seefin to Seefingan and possibly further. Track 1823 Time to top around 90 min.

For a quick dash up and down you could start at around O0834 1414 B. Track 801. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/92/comment/4852/
