I took walk from Glencar to Benbulben passing Swiss Valley. On good day views are amazing. You need to take good boots with u ( very boggy terrain) and a hat as on top of the mountain usually is very windy. Great freedom up there!

Glorious trip to the area surrounding the iconic Benbulben mountain. Definitely worth the trip. It feels spiritual an awe-inspiring.

It's always a delight and challenge to climb Benbulben. The scenery is spectacular. I'm part of Enniscrone Walking Club, and I must say Benbulben is requested a few times a year as a favourite walk
