Little over a 17 km route if you leave from Cronin's yard. Handy car park at Cronins yard €2 a go. They have a coffee shop with toilets, showers etc. there if you need it. Great walk up the valley splitting the two lakes before...More

Challenging walk but enjoyable, the views are fantastic. But make sure you check weather and go with someone.

A great hike that has amazing views, if you can get a good day! We went up the devil's ladder and down the zig zags. Devil's ladder is steep and requires some scrambling. Takes about 2 hours to get to the summit this way. Hiking...More
