Hiked up Mount Brandon one morning. It had rained the night before, so it was a little muddy, but it was not too bad. Great views of the ocean and the valley. If you are looking to get out and see the Outdoors this is...More

Drove through the Conor Pass to near the top of Mt. Brandon. On a clear day great views of both Tralee and Dingle. Worth the Drive.

Steep hills to climb. Beautifull views and the signs are easy to follow. Once you make it to the end.... it is a long way back!

We started this hike from the car park at the hostel near Cloghan. This isn't a difficult hike although there are parts, approaching the summit, that require a bit of focus and concentration. The scenery is breathtaking and having a nice day helped. Up and...More

This climb is not for the faint of heart but is worth the effort - even if you do not make it all the way to the top. As a middle aged (alright OLD) traveler who is not in the best physical shape, I say...More

If your on the way into Dingle you will see a brown sign pointing you towards Brandon's Point. Check it out as its only a mere 10km off the main road into Dingle. The views are amazing! There is also a Pilgramage trail in which...More

Mount Brandon is a wonderful way to spend an afternoon on Dingle! The climb begins right away, trekking through sheep dotted countryside. The 360 degree views from the summit are breathtaking and well worth the effort. Bring a layer, the wind on the summit can...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.
