A tough walk, starting with the steep ascent of Slievemore from Doogort Strand. We then reached the W part of the deserted village and followed the track for a few hundred meters, then taking a right turn to reach the signal tower (Pt. 194) and Cornaclea Hill, where we stopped for a snack. The ascent of Croaghaun from this side is not steep (apart from the last pull-up), but it is pretty long, with a few boggy patches. The views are stunning almost all along the way. The best moment was when the clouds stuck alongside Croaghaun's cliffs progressively disappeared to let us admire the amazing sheer drops falling into the ocean. The descent was tough, too, on rather steep, uneven ground. End on Keem Strand. Two cars needed, unless you can get a lift from Keem to Doogort.
