Open KML file to view the hiking trails up to Mt Brandon in Google Earth!

Dingle Peninsula (An Daingean) is less touristy than the Ring of Kerry. It offers an extraordinary number of rings forts, high crosses and other ancient monuments. A hiking delight is Mt Brandon (Cnoc BhrÊannain), at 951m Ireland's second-highest mountain. There are two walking trails up. A gradual one from the west and a more exciting one from the east, allow at least five hours for the climb.
