Start from near the end of the road to Keem, where there is formal and informal parking.
Near the north end of the walk, look out for Bunafreva Lough (further north). This is a lake perched in a most surprising way on the side of a cliff.

We did a modified route on the 21/08/2020 since we had fog till the mid afternoon, but it got better at the end of the day.

Followed the path till the plateau, from there we climbed directly to Croaghaun and then to Croaghaun SW when heading down, the fog started to disappear, continued our route through the gap between Croaghaun and Benmore, and climbed from the two loughs till Benmore following the path marked on the map. Then, followed the path till the end of it, where there is an old building (Moyteoge Head). And back to the beach :)

NOTE: ALL information such as Ascent, Length and Creator time taken etc should be regarded as approximate. The creator's comments are opinions and may not be accurate or still correct.
Your time to complete will depend on your speed plus break time and your mode of transport. For walkers: Naismith's rule, an approximate though often inaccurate estimate, suggests a time of 5h 7m + time stopped for breaks
NOTE: It is up to you to ensure that your route is appropriate for you and your party to follow bearing in mind all factors such as safety, weather conditions, experience and access permission.

* Note: A GPS Height in the elevation profile is sourced from the device that recorded the track. An "SRTM" height is derived from a model of elevations for parts of the earth. More detail
