Oddly, Nephin Beg is some distance from Nephin and there are other intervening mountains between them. Why it is so named is, therefore, something of a mystery, unless it too was a sanctuary. For origin of name, see Nephin. Walks: for a route to the summit from the SE, see Whilde & Simms, New Irish Walk Guide - West and North, 71.
Nephin Beg is the 244th highest place in Ireland. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/233/?PHPSESSID=gto0atklavg95hj24tph2tuvq2
