Longitude: -10.338891, Latitude: 52.160466 , Easting: 39999, Northing: 103484 Prominence: 263m,  Isolation: 3.6km,   Has trig pillar

Bedrock type: Cross-bedded sandstone, (Coumeenoole Sandstone Formation)

The element leataoibh appears in the name of three townlands ranged along the northern slopes of this hill. No name is recorded for the hill by An Seabhac, but since the townland names are clearly topographical in origin, it seems reasonable to take Leataoibh as the name of the hill itself.   Leataoibh is the third highest hill in the Dingle West area and the 1112th highest in Ireland.

Do NOT take the "shortcut" through forestry!
by Conor74  1 Jul 2013
If you park in the laybys at the crossroads to the north of the summit, be careful. There is a short stretch of forestry on the direct route to the summit and the temptation will be to go through it. Now I have been through plenty of forestry in my time, but this one was hell on earth, tress densely packed, waist high furze growing through it, briars, tufts of ground that dropped up to above the waist when one took a step forward or back into the said furze. I set new records for swearing to myself, I hollered and howled, I praised arsonists and thought how from now on I will greet the sight of burning forestry with a new found joy, and when I emerged at the other side I was like a pin cushion with lots of bloody spots dotting my clothes. I can't offer an alternative route, I descended to the east of the forestry which involved getting across a fence, again mixed with furze, that would do the Grand National justice. You have been warned. Views from the top pretty spectacular mind you, and did have the mild pleasure of releasing a lamb trapped in a fence and disappointing the crows circling overhead.
