Hungry Hill

Hungry Hill

The highest mountain on the Beara Peninsula, seen here from across Adrigole harbour. Climbs are frequently held by groups in Castletownbere especially on Saturdays when they meet at the Centra filling station. There are various ways to climb the mountain, the most popular made famous by the late Dr. John Lyne who ascended by taking the Rossmacowen road that rises a good portion of the Bantry Bay side. Other routes include one from the Pocket beyond Glanmore Lake and another being from the west side which involves a fairly long walk in before the ascent begins. This latter route is actually sign posted on the road to Rossmacowen

This mountain towers high to the north of Kilmackillogue Harbour in the Co. Kerry part of the Beara Peninsula. The best way to climb is by taking the old road from Lauragh to Ardea and then leaving it to climb the mountain.
