We meet at 10:00 in Annascaul. Then we pool cars and drive through Dingle to Mount Eagle Lake. There is limited room to park here so car pooling is essential.
After viewing the lake we walk North to join the zig zag path which turns South Westwards up to the grassy ridge which leads on to Mount Eagle summit. The top is very broad and flat, so for best views we have to walk a circle around the summit. Then the views are unbeatable. The Blaskets lie bellow us. Dingle Bay to the South and the Reeks to the South East. If it is very clear we may catch site of the Connemara mountains. After prolonged resting we will retrace our steps back to our cars at Mount Eagle.
