Park at the Vee and you have a choice of two walks or a loop if you have navigation. Great views but choose the weather carefully!

Fantastic walking and views in the area - the beautiful Vee. Accessible from Clogheen easily. The ascents are very manageable and great place to meet other walkers.

I climbed this (2,906 ft, but less if you start at the Vee carpark) and it had spectacular views of several counties and the coast from the top. You need to be fit, though! (I wasn't, but made it)
