Mount Brandon

Outside of the Macgillycuddy's Reeks range, Mount Brandon is the highest peak in Ireland. It rises from the coast of the incredible Dingle peninsula. A clear day at the summit is a rarity; be mindful that strong winds and incessant rain are frequent visitors of the broad, exposed summit. The classic route is from the east and requires a bit of scrambling; the pilgrim route marked by white posts is easier and is best for low visibility conditions.
