We will walk the most direct route to the summit via Devil’s Punch Bowl, and climbing the steep eastern arête to the Mangerton plateau with a great view over Horse’s Glen. The walk is on green road and mountain tracks, suitable for people without hill walking experience and a moderate fitness level.
If weather is good, we will have lunch break at the summit with views of Kenmare Bay, Beara Peninsula, the MacGillycuddy’s Reeks, Killarney National Park and Dingle Peninsula. From here, the way down could be done in 2 hours with an easy pace.
Cesar from Killarney Mindful Hiking was an amazing guide for varying fitness levels up Mangerton. He adjusted the trail we took based on weather, ability, and what he thought we might like. At one point I managed to get separated from the group. Cesar spotted me, assessed the situation, and calmly guided me back to the group. He provided a stellar experience that was challenging yet manageable.
