Also known as Slieve Cor or Corslieve. The Discovery map links the name Corslieve with a neighbouring peak (541m) situated about 3 miles to the south, but the Ordnance Survey Name Book and William Bald's map of Mayo (1830) show quite clearly that it is simply an alternative for Slieve Carr, with the same elements inverted. A cairn on the summit is named Laghtdauhybaun on the old ½ inch map, but is unnamed on the Discovery map. This is probably derived from Ir. Leacht Dáithí Bháin, 'burial monument of white Dáithí'. There may be a connection with Dáithí, a king of Connacht and reputed last pagan high-king of Ireland (see Slieve Alp). This peak is named Curslieve on Bald’s map of Mayo (1830).   Slieve Carr is the highest mountain in the Nephin Begs area and the 97th highest in Ireland. Slieve Carr is the most northerly summit in the Nephin Begs area.

Challenging, peaceful and remote with great views.
Short Summary created by markmjcampion, simon3  6 Mar 2023
This summit in NW Mayo may be the most remote and hard won of any in Ireland. It has considerable merit, having a magnificent grassy 400m ridge on the summit, which has an enormous burial mound and great views of Achill and most of the Nephin Begs.

There are at least 4 approaches, from all four cardinal points.

E. Park at F97586 16634 starA at a sometimes-locked gate. Ask permission at the house at F96566 16012 starB. Head along a forest track over a newish bridge into the forest. The track winds its way to a small lake near F94558 15438 starC. Head WSW along a fence to open ground. From here, it is possible but dangerous to ascend directly to the summit - better to contour around to F92296 13213 starD and go up the SE ridge. Round trip 5 - 6 hours.

W. Ask permission at last house on the road to park at F85390 15197 starE. Walk NE, keeping the river on your right, to where the Bangor Trail crosses the Tarsaghaunmore river at a bridge F86809 16151 starF and follow the trail SE to get to the Tawnyanruddia spur. Then head for the S spur of SC and walk N on good ground to the summit. 3hrs+ to top

The N and S approaches are much longer although the S route can be shortened considerably by cycling to F93685 12405 starG.

N. Start at F86574 22668 starH and walk S along the Bangor Trail from Bangor Erris to the Tawnyanruddia spur.

S. Walk N along the Bangor Trail from around F97608 04850 starI to the Tawnyanruddia spur.
