This is for the more adventurous people who have a good level of fitness and want to experience the spectacular views from Irelands highest mountain.  The route is via the Hydro Road and the three Caher peaks.  To climb to the top of Carrauntoohil is a great experience, but to see Carrauntoohil in all its splendour, there is no better vantage point than Cahir in a quiet area of the McGillycuddy’s Reeks.

Starting at 9 a.m. from The Manor Inn, Killorglin

“C” WALK – Seefin:  Easy Walk approx 3 hrs duration.

Starting at 10 a.m. from The Manor Inn, Killorglin

Seefin Mountain circuit is an easy to moderate walking route to the summit of Seefin Mountain (493m) and back along the same route with great views of the sourrounding countryside near Glenbeigh. You can enjoy a fantastic view of Rossbeigh beach and strand, Caragh Lake, and Caherciveen.
