Macgillycuddy's Reeks

Highly recommended
Macgillycuddy's Reeks mountain range is the location of Carrantuohill, the country's highest peak at 1,038m/3,405ft. The steep slope strewn in boulders and humid peaty soil will soon however convince you that the climb is far from a "doddle", even if the panorama at the top is ample reward. Experienced hikers only should attempt the climb, kitted out with proper footwear, water and food; not recommended after heavy rain or during misty weather.
