The Beentee Loop is a Must-Do Around Cahersiveen

The town of Cahersiveen, at the foot of Beentee  mountain, is said to “climb the mountain and look upon the sea”. The Beentee Loop starts at the Fairgreen in the middle of town and leads right over the summit of the mountain and back down again into the town.

At 367 meters, Beentee mountain is very managable and the loop walk is around 9km long. Good enough for 5-year old Kaya (promised an ice-cream upon completion) to agree coming along. The track leads through some pleasant woodlands and soon gains height towards Beentee.
