Parking and driving is difficult along the small public road shown as the start here. Consider starting from the main road further south at Rossmackowen.
Ascend the well made track onto the open land above. This road goes right up to the Glas Loughs. A green road to green loughs, presumed by Seán Ó Súilleabháin [Walk Guide, South West of Ireland] " .. to be a road made to give access to the bogs for turf-cutting during World War II when fuel was scarce. .." Curiously however the area that appeared to have been harvested was comparatively slight, at least relative to the effort of building such a serviceable road. Perhaps he was misinformed about the purpose of the road - certainly his book mentions Bear Island as being occupied by the British until 1921, when in reality it was occupied until 1938. Correctly Seán mentions the value of this track which can also be used to access Hungry Hill to its east.
This GPS track however is one of those summiteers routes wending an inclusive way over an areas summits, in this case no less than five of them. The initial three summits surround the Glas Loughs, an isolated almost pristine wilderness with extremely rough ground with many short 5 to 10m crags. As well as the early view to Bear island from Maulin and Lackawee in particular there is an astonishing view on a good day of most of the Iveragh peninsula.
Coming down off Maulin find the junction of rough, public roads at V721 491, go downhill until you find the Béara Way going east over a last minute sting in the tail of a ridge. The Way will take you to the road you parked on.
