What people are saying about us

  • Character building hike

    Started from the faha carpark by the grotto, through sheep pastures up to the stony narrow walk along the edge of the valley. There’s a bit of scrambling on the vertical rise from this point up to the top, then a short walk along the top to the peak.

  • A nice hike in rain and sun.

    Great mountain to climb research the routes the tourist route is ok but the other routes can be more challenging but great views of Tralee bay.

  • Lovely

    Absolutely stunning! Breath-taking views (which I partly saw on google as it was covered in clouds in a day we went there. Well marked so it is hard to get lost. The first part (app. 1,5km) can be slightly hard and long, but it gets better later

  • Great climb, with varied terrain

    Really nice climb to the summit, with an easy to follow trail. Just go up by the grotto at the start and you can’t go wrong. Varied terrain and beautiful views throughout, keeping things interesting for the 4 hours round trip. Highly recommended.

  • Stunning

    Spectacular views – take the time to climb around everything that you see. From the top, you will have a great view – maybe a low cloud sitting between two ridges?

  • Great walk up Mount Brandon

    What a special place!! It’s a bit of a hard walk up, but the white posts and crosses mean you can’t get lost when the mist descends. Epic views and very atmospheric in the swirling mist on the day we were there. But folks… Please! Please! Take home your orange peel and banana skins! They don’t belong strewn on top of such a beautiful mountain.
