Piaras shared his wealth of knowledge on the mountain, the wildlife, and the plant life.

I trekked the Coumloughra Hourseshoe route with Kerry Climbing on 17 May 2017. This trek took in the three highest mountains in Ireland - Beenkeragh, Carrauntoohil and Caher, and took about seven hours to complete. While it was physically demanding, the most daunting part for me was the combination of high exposure, narrow ridges and steep drop offs. Both scary... More

The hike was amazing although not just an easy walk. Carrauntoohil is a "proper" mountain as our guide Pierce pointed out to me. I had considering doing the climb with out a guide but was very glad I opted to use Kerry Climbing. Weather include rain, wind and occasional sun breaks, a true taste of Ireland.
