Neighborhood: Kenmare
Overview

Peaceful farmland and fern covered hills make this a particularly pleasant hike. Although the climb to Crohane Mountain is short, it can be rigorous in places. The total length is four miles (six and a half kilometres), but allow up to four hours. This walk offers spectacular views of Lough Guitane, the Lakes of Killarney, and Cappagh Glen. Also visible are the ruins of Killaha Tower, home to O'Donoghue of the Glen, before its destruction in 1562 by Cromwell's army. On the Kenmare Road take the sign posted left turn for Lough Guitane, just before Muckross Village. Look for a laneway on the right a quarter of a mile (0.4 kilometre) after Lough Guitane. Park your car along the road and begin the walk here.
