When we visited in late November some of the signs to the country lane that leads up to the carpark were missing which made it a bit hard to find. About 7km out of Dingle the road divides with signs to Brandon Creek and Mount...More

One of five walks during a week in Irland. We walked ut the steepest path, and it was quite strenous, but were rewarded on the top. The fog vanished, and we had a clear view 360 degrees. Well worth the climb, but I would not...More

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

The trailhead is well marked but you need to plan ahead. Weather is the most important factor is how your hike will go. Lovely area.

Great experience in a beautiful part of Ireland. Although the views were obscured by a sea must the sense of solitude and isolation was enhanced. The trail from Baile breac is well marked. Very manageable for anyone who is an experienced hiker or with a...More

Started Hiking at 8 pm , during the hottest period of time that Ireland has had since 1976. Sunset was about 10:20 pm. I was tired from several previous hikes so I only went half way up to the Cross Number 6. So Glad I...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

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.
