Start at the hydro road. Its a fairly long but relatively straightforward route which follows the southern rim of Coomloughra and takes in the triple summit of Ireland’s third highest mountain Caher (1001m) en route to the summit of Carrauntoohil. For more experienced parties the complete Coomloughra Horseshoe - which includes Ireland’s three highest peaks - is an option. This takes in the spectacularly exposed knife-edge of the Beenkeeragh Ridge, but this is only for those with a head for heights and should not be attempted at all in windy conditions. Allow 6 hours for the Caher-Carrauntoohil-Caher trip and 8 hours for the full horseshoe.Ref: KMRT http://www.kerrymountainrescue.ie/routes/caher.html

    Brand new car park just open right beside hydro road. Look out for new road about 50 metres north of hydro path start. Nice walk, not difficult at all, but can get complicated due to weather conditions, mainly wind and fog. As the author says, don't try Beenkeeragh Ridge unless you are absolutely sure you can make it.
