Beenoskee and Stradbally Mountain are key features of the central massif of the Dingle Peninsula, and (almost needless to say) have magnificent views.

They can be climbed from several directions, but the main walk up is the rocky path from Glenteenassig Wood, a remnant of gorgeous old woodland with a pair of lovey lakelets, itself a fascinating walking area that should be enjoyed on the way up/down, or in its own right.

You can walk on, over the “Slieve” mountains to the Connor Pass (see below) for an outstanding walk.

Slievanea Ridge: to the west of Beenoskee, Slievanea, Croaghskearda, Windy Gap, and Knocknulanane are all on the same ridge, and salivatory walking.

See our Dingle Peninsula page for more general and practical information and photos.
