There’s plenty of room for parking at the cemetery at the top of Coad Road, near Castle Cove. From here we headed SW on the Kerry Way, then at the junction took the NE Kerry Way track heading to Waterville. We left this track before it reached the Windy Gap, climbing steadily north to Eagles Hill (549m). The ridge from Eagles Hill to Mullaghbeg encircles the Coomtooanig Lough, but the Lough is not visible from the ridge. The ground conditions would normally be very boggy, but after a long dry spell the the bog was (mostly) dried out, making for a not too difficult walk. Just beyond point 473m, a track leading down to Coomnahorma Valley is reached. We planned to descent into this valley, but not just yet. From Mullaghbeg (509m) to Beenrour (418m), there were superb views over Lough Currane, with great views of Ballinskelligs Bay from Beenrour. The plan was to follow a track near the saddle between Beenrour and Mullaghbeg, which contoured around Mullaghbeg to reach the main track down into Coomnahorma Valley. However, this track is barely visible on the ground and my GPS was needed to keep us, er, on track. The dots on the map become a proper track on the ground about 1km before the junction with the main track. This track descends into the valley in a series of long switchbacks. It was tempting to cut these short, but I was overruled. Just before the junction with the N70 and the Kerry Way track at Caherdaniel, we chanced on a garden centre which had a cafe with good coffee and cake. This added about 45 minutes to our route time, but it was a very pleasant 45 minutes! The Kerry Way track brought us back to the car on the Coad Road.
