Carrantuohill is the highest peak in Ireland. It is part of Macgillicuddy's Reeks, a rugged twelve-mile ridge which stretches along the southwest corner of the island, not far from the Atlantic shore. It can be approached from any direction, and is basically a walk-up from all directions. Approaching from the northwest is the most rugged route. Always expect heavy wind and precipitation in West Ireland. The Lakes of Killarney and area pubs are also popular attractions.
