Carrauntoohil is Ireland's highest mountain, with 1,038 metres of height (3,405 feet) on The MacGillycuddy’s Reeks, County Kerry. I will meet with my hiking group at Cronin's Yard Coffee Shop at 09:00. After checking gear and supplies we will start out our lovely walk. On our way, perhaps we meet sheep, we watch the birds soar, we smell the gorse flower as we walk into Hag’s Glen for one hour before our first rest at the base of the Hag’s Tooth, where we will enjoy our first cup of tea/coffee out in nature. We then prepare for the summit and the actual climb, with short scrambles and steep climb we will head via O’Shea's Gully. Setting off, as we rise higher and higher we are greeted with better and better views, we experience more pleasure than pain. When we finally arrive at the summit we are awestruck by the views, the best in Ireland in a clear day. We can see the entire County of Kerry, the Black Valley, Dingle Peninsula, West Cork, even the Atlantic Ocean. Priceless!! With our well deserved rest, refreshed and elated it's time to descend via Devil’s Ladder, taking our time and being extra careful we work our way down. Finally Cronin's Yard comes into view, a dream fulfilled.
