Overlooking Lough Leane to the North East and separated from the Macgillycuddys Reeks by The Gap of Dunloe, Purple Mountain derives it's name from the colour of the sandstone rock, which emits a purple hue under favourable light conditions.

Ireland’s highest peak!  On a fine day it allows your view to extend to the far away mountains, lakes, farmlands and ocean of the surrounding area for as far as 100 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 the 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 who have a true passion for our native high mountains, and take a walk on the wild side. Guides available for all other mountains in region and beyond. Forest, Lakes, and Mountain Day Treks are also available.
