Highlights

  • At just 3,406 feet, this peak, the highest in Ireland, seems much grander than its elevation.
  • Steep sided and rugged, Carrauntoohil and the rest of the MacGillycuddy's Reeks have a unique beauty -- rocky and grassy with lots of sheep.
  • The MacGillycuddy's Reeks Ridge Traverse is a great challenge; hitting all 11 3,000+ ft peaks in one day is a famous achievement.
