I imagine that few enough of you will be interested in this route to Beenduff from Glanmore, because you'll inevitably want to get there the sensible way from Q 71563 05353 as part of a ridge walk taking in Knockbrack, Moanlaur, Knockmore and Beenduff. Perfectly understandable! See Tracks Onzy 2233 and simon3 2007 for the sensible way. I ran out of time some years ago while following that ridge route and never got to Beenduff. To avoid going over old ground, I decided to take this short little hike from the glen. It was surprisingly satisfying, probably because the panorama to the south (Inch, Iveragh etc) is revealed in a sudden burst, and it's awe inspiring.
Getting there involves driving along The Dingle Way just north of Inch, and following it for about 2k over a rough forest road as the "Way" turns NE. Park either just inside the north eastern edge of the forest (plenty of spaces available), or, if you have a tractor, you can emerge onto the mountain and pull in at Q 66273 04406 or Q 66679 04658.
Post Script. Our Map above shows forest obstructing the beginning and end of the route. In fact there is (no longer) any forest there.
An obvious extension would involve a short hop from Beenduff to Cnoc na Stuaice creating a triangular route.
I see that Wicklore has done quite a bit of work in this area. He gives a route down from Cnoc na Stuaice to the west, as follows:
" descended to the west of Emlagh which was tough due to the steep slopes. The west slope was rock strewn in places, and large areas of dense fern made the descent a slow, careful affair. I headed for the bridge over the Emlagh River at Q649 025 (Point C) and had a long tramp back to the car at Q716 048 (Point D), where I had parked at a track for the start of the walk."
Some day, when I have completed the Arderins and Vandaleur Lynams, I hope that I can get two cars together to walk from Knockbrack to Cnoc na Stuaice. That would be an undulating ridge but effectively a relaxing journey downhill.
