When we visited in late November some of the signs to the country lane that leads up to the carpark were missing which made it a bit hard to find. About 7km out of Dingle the road divides with signs to Brandon Creek and Mount...More
One of five walks during a week in Irland. We walked ut the steepest path, and it was quite strenous, but were rewarded on the top. The fog vanished, and we had a clear view 360 degrees. Well worth the climb, but I would not...More
Be prepared, yes, true. You need the proper gear, mountaineering boots, warm clothing and something to keep you dry. Tell friends or family where and when you are going. Take enough food and water. AND bring your camera, the best camera is the one you...More

There are two routes up,the most scenic is from Faha outside the village of cloghane but best done in good weather.The other is from an baile breach which is on the road from dingle to slea head,you will turn right off this road signposted mount Brandon.Hope this helps
The easiest route is from the west. It was no problem for an 8 year old in perfect weather. 8 year old is normal fit and doesn't do a lot of hiking. A 5 year old might be ok, but probably a bit tough/long for a 3 year old.
