Onzy: Track 2579 in area near Ben Beg, Partry/Joyce Country (Ireland)
Joyces Country: Bunnacunneen Horseshoe
Length: 11.4km, Creator time taken: 3h44m, Ascent: 835m,
Descent: 835m

Places: Start at L97196 56996, Ben Beg, Bunnacunneen, Bunnacunneen South Top, Bunnacunneen SE Top, Lugnabrick SW Top, Lugnabrick NE Top, end at Start
Logged as completed by 1

Circular route taking in Ben Beg, Bunnacunneen, its SE Top and the two Lugnabricks. Parking in the (apparently unnamed, at least on OS38) valley is difficult. I used the only obvious layby at L97196 56996, where two cars could fit, three if they were coordinated.

Straightforward enough circuit except for the descent into the valley from Lugnabrick NE. I would recommend heading east along the ridgeline, perhaps for another 300-400m before descending north. I found myself on steep ground and had to pick my way down pretty carefully. To cap it all, the 'C' in 'Joyces Country' which is very evident on sheet OS38, was faithfully duplicated on my Satmap, meaning that the relevant contours were obscured!

There are a number of fences to be crossed on the return north.

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, a rough and often inaccurate estimate, suggests a time of 3h 40m + 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
