Purple & Tomies Mountains 7th November €100pp Grade: Beginner
Overlooking Lough Leane to the North East and separated from the Macgillycuddys Reeks by the gap of Dunloe, the Purple Mountain derives its name from the colour of the sandstone rock, which emits a purple hue under favourable light conditions.

Corran Tuathail Last Saturday each month €100pp
Ireland’s highest peak that on a fine day allows your view to extend to the far away mountains, lakes, farmlands and ocean of the surrounding area for as far as a hundred miles. It’s a magnificent, rugged, scenic mountain to climb and an experience that one doesn’t forget. We have many routes that can be climbed for the beginner to the more experienced hill-walker.

We are Irelands leading guides for these mountains here in Kerry. We organise Corrán Tuathail, and mountain challenges for individuals, clubs, charities and companies. We also run Four and five peaks challenges in Ireland, England, Scotland and Wales.Enjoy the experience with guides with a passion for our native high mountains, and take a walk on the wild side. Guides available for all other mountains in region. Forest, Lakes, and Mountain Day Treks also available.To book a climb, Contact us at 064 6644181 or e-mail This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it
