Into oza kuyenza

Carrauntoohil is Ireland's highest mountain, with 1,038 metres of height (3,405 feet) in County Kerry. It's a strenuous walk ideal for a person with a good fitness level, hill walking experience & hiking boots.

ITINERARY:

Distance of 13 km.
Total climbing 950 metres.
Duration 6+ hours.

I will meet with my hiking group at Kate Kearney's Cottage in The Gap of Dunloe at 09:30. After checking gear and supplies, we will drive to Lisleibane free car park in 10 minutes. Please, bring your own transport.

On our way, perhaps we meet sheep, we watch the birds soar, we smell the gorse flower as we walk into Hag’s Glen for one hour before our first rest at the base of the Hag’s Tooth.

We then prepare for the summit and the actual climb, with short scrambles and steep climb we will head via O’Shea's Gully. Setting off, as we rise higher and higher we are greeted with better and better views, we experience more pleasure than pain.

When we finally arrive at the summit we are awestruck by the views, the best in Ireland in a clear day. We can see the entire County of Kerry, the Black Valley, Dingle Peninsula, West Cork, even the Atlantic Ocean. Priceless!!

With our well deserved rest, refreshed and elated it's time to descend taking our time and being extra careful we work our way down via Devil’s Ladder, or Zig-Zag path; or Heaven's Gate depending on weather conditions and safety.

Uza kube uphi

This mountain range is just 20-30 kilometres from the North Atlantic Ocean which brings extreme and very changeable weather conditions in winter and summer.

On the other hand, the beauty of South West Ireland’s coastline, mountains, woodlands and lakes are outstanding. From Carrauntoohil on a clear day there are exceptional views that will remain in your memory forever.

The route with a total distance of 13 kilometres (8.5 miles approx.)

Ifumene 5.0 kweziyi- 5 kwizimvo eziyi- 27.

We've had a fantastic experience hiking with Cesar who was extremely accommodating with us. He had a wealth of knowledge about the surrounding area and we both felt like we were in good and experienced hands climbing the tallest mountain in Ireland. Would hike with Cesar again ✌️🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

After reading the previous reviews I decided Cesar was the person I wanted to be our guide. While we have a good level of fitness it was the route that scared me to try on our own. Cesar delivered exactly what the other reviewers said. He has a calm presence and and manages to inspire your confidence. He explained how to use your feet , how to walk on the rocks and got me to practice switching pole from hand to hand while using the other for scrambling. There were 2 of us and after chatting and getting a sense of our goals and capabilities he challenged us to go at a much faster pace than I would if we were on our own. I would therefore recommend that you contact for a private or small group Cesar if you would like to also challenge yourself under his safe and careful guidance. I for one have already planned a longer trip in the future to try the horseshoe! If you book Cesar you will not be disappointed.

Great day, great experience ! We were hiking in a small group of 4. Felt safe and enjoyable the whole way. Cesar paid attention to the level of each hiker and was able to adapt the pace and the route, thanks to a good knowledge of terrain in Carrauntauhil. He is friendly and very positive.
