This is a short route taking in two outliers of the main Glenbeigh Horseshoe range. Parking at V93526 80439 (Map 78) I followed the Kerry Way up to the col between Coolroe and Seefin on a good track. From the col it's a quick 15 minutes up to Coolroe to enjoy great views across to the main Glenbeigh range. Back to the col and a long slog over wet ground up to Seefin. (Don't follow the fence like I did but keep well to the left or right of it - It is quite boggy). Seefin has a trig pillar set into reddish ground surrounded by a circle of white stones. There are great views across to Curra Hill and further afield to the McGillycuddy Reeks. I then took a direct route across country back towards my car, negotiating steep hillside on the way. A nice short(ish) walk to finish a few days of long hiking, and two quiet summits visited along the way.
