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.
REVIEW: Jessica - Ireland - 2019
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. I would definitely recommend this business!
This hike is on open moorland and mountain, with wet ground at some spots, narrow mountain tracks surrounded by high heather and short steep climbs.
A good level of fitness is required to complete the walk on time, some experience in hill walking is needed.
The semi-circular walking route will be contouring near Tomies and Shehy mountains.
From the summit of Purple at 832 metres, there are great views of The MacGillycuddy’s Reeks and Killarney National Park.
REVIEW: Ann Marie - Ireland - 2020
My friend and I were very impressed with Cesar's Purple Mountain guided hike. He took us up a lesser known route which gave us spectacular views of the Gap of Dunloe. He is very knowledgeable of the mountains in the area and we will be asking Cesar to take us up more mountains. Great value for money as well as we found that other guides were charging more for similar routes in the area. Cesar is very friendly and professional.”
Tomies Mountain is a moderate walk

Killarney National Park
From Tomies Wood walking during 30 minutes before we reach from the north the lower slopes of Tomies Mountain. Travelling in a straight line toward the summit, but doing zigzag on steep terrain to make an easy ascent, we will pass megalithic remains of a hut site with views NE over Lough Leane.
The walk is on open moorland over wet ground, long grass & rough heather, but most times we try to follow sheep and deer tracks suitable for hiking boots and a moderate fitness level.
Our lunch break will be in the summit cairn at 735 metres over sea level (2,410 feet) with a great view of Killarney National Park and The MacGillycuddy’s Reeks. After, the way down by the east slopes of Tomies Mountain heading to Gortadirra and back to the wood to see an ancient holly tree and visit O’Sullivan Cascade.
