Hugely enjoyable walk, taking in seven summits, with some of the best views in Ireland. Most would probably do this in a shorter time, as I'm not a fast walker, and I stop for lots of photographs. I also did this on a very hot day, and didn't take nearly enough water for the conditions so I found it tough, especially towards the end where I had to take a lot of breaks. I even had a half hour nap at one point!

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 6h 42m + time stopped for breaks
