What you'll do

I will meet with my hiking group at Kate Kearney's Cottage at 10:00. After I have made sure they have the right hiking footwear & comfortable clothing for the hill walk, we have to drive 5 minutes to Tomies Wood free car park to start out our lovely walk.

Starting our walk at a leisurely pace, I will make sure that everybody is comfortable and happy. We will stop at regular intervals to enjoy the scenery, to take pictures, and have some food and drink.

During the walk I like to talk with my group about issues related to the area, such ancient dwelling places.

Itinerary:

Distance of 10 km.
Total height gain 850 metres.
5 hours.

From Tomies Wood walking during 30 minutes before we reach the lower slopes of Tomies Mountain, then 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.

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. The way down by the east slopes heading to Gortadirra and back to the wood to see an ancient holly tree and visit O’Sullivan Cascade.
