I have been looking at this mountain from across Tralee Bay all my life and have waited until I am 65 to climb it. On a glorious day in April my husband and I set off to through Dingle and approached the mountain by the West route which we were told was the easiest of the two routes. It is... More

Brandon Point. A must see. Totally breath taking views and on a clear day you can see over the water to the other islets. The view of the beach and the mountains on the way to the point and on the way back down are fantastic. You would need a car to reach Brandon Point if you have mobility concerns... More

Mount Brandon is Ireland's second highest mountain and can be climbed from 2 directions (Dingle or Claghane). We choose the Dingle route for our first time, as we were told it is a bit easier from this side. There is a car park at the base of the mountain which is well signposted. The mountain is strongly associated with St.... More

3 hours 50 minutes up and down in poor weather conditions. No problem route finding with markers and crosses all along the simple path. Bit rugged nearer the summit with some erosion from the '000's of walkers who make a pilgrimage here. The views once out of the clouds were stunning.

The first thing I would say is read Rays review. It is excellent and accurate. Thank you Ray! We went on a sunny day in April, and had fantastic views. To be honest I wouldn't like to try it in wet weather, climbing over boulders is not for the faint hearted! That said there is a well defined path, with... More

Most places you drive around the Dingle peninsula, it is just there, in all its awesome beauty, Big and green, rocky on top, love it, tried to climb it a few years back but only made it about half way up! Still enjoy, and be ready for the weather!

Lovely walk, was easy enough ascent. The views of the area were fabulous.There are 14 crosses on the way up.Clouds descended when we are at the top but was still lovely. It took about 2.5 hours and 1.5 hours to get up and then down.

If travellling around Dingle Peninsula, don't miss the mountain! Walking with sheeps all around is great and views are breathtaking. And don't forget to buy some delicious bakery in the store across the church in Cloghane :)

Mount Brandon has to be one of the nicest climbs that we have done to date, it is a steady climb with breathtaking views, on a good day which we got, it takes approximately five hours to climb up and back again. We started out from Cloghan where there is a small car park. The weather can be quite changeable... More

This has to be one of the nicest walk that one could undertake on a mountain. (Warning: weather changes quickly and can go from hot to cold to wet and back again very quickly. Therefore go prepared). It will take you up to 5 hours and is not for the unfit or unprepared. However carefully managed it can be done... More
