Walking & Climbing in Glencar

MacGillyCuddy's Reeks
Two tracks to Carrantuohill Mountain start only a few meters from the house. The Coomloughra Horseshoe [more below] is one of the finest ridge walks in Ireland covering the highest Irish mountains and takes about 6-8 hrs from the house.

The Coomloughra circuit
starts and ends near the house and is considered to be the country's finest horseshoe walk as it covers Irelands highest summits: Caher (1001 mtrs), Carrauntuohill (1039mtrs) and Beenkeragh (1010mtrs). The view from any of the three mountains is stunning! The route is best done in an anti-clockwise direction to reach Carrauntuohill before Beenkeragh. The stretch between these two mountains is narrow and can be dangerous in high winds and in wet conditions and should not be attempted by people likely to suffer from Vertigo. In these cases just return on the route you came to Carrauntuohill. The circuit takes about 6-8 hours and requires good condition and all necessary gear, suitable clothing including wind- and waterproof anorak and walking boots. Navigation is fairly easy. Click here for a map. There are a number of access points to the circuit from the house which we'll be happy to show you. We provide you with packed lunches and drinks and after return we'll have a cold beer waiting for you! Enjoy the walk and return safely!
