Be prepared, yes, true. You need the proper gear, mountaineering boots, warm clothing and something to keep you dry. Tell friends or family where and when you are going. Take enough food and water. AND bring your camera, the best camera is the one you...More

Mount Brandon is well sign posted out of Dingle and there is a small carpark at the outset. The route up is brilliantly marked out, with white posts and stone crosses. The terrain initially is steep grassy banks which towards the later third becomes more...More

Trekking shoes needed! It is also necessary to have an umbrella. If you can visit it with friends, it will be more fun. If you stay long enough in the area you can visit the Dead zone area it is not the usual place visited...More

We had experienced a lot of rain the day before and the ground was still very wet/boggy. There really is no trail. You are just following the rocky outline of a creek or runoff bed most of the way up. Hiking boots for ankle stability...More

It took myself and two friends 4 and half hours up and down. We stopped at the top for tea also. It is a hard climb though.

The easiest route is from the west. It was no problem for an 8 year old in perfect weather. 8 year old is normal fit and doesn't do a lot of hiking. A 5 year old might be ok, but probably a bit tough/long for a 3 year old.
