Mount Brandon, County Kerry

Mt. Brandon Kerry

Mount Brandon is on the Dingle Peninsula.

It is the second highest peak in Ireland at 3,127 feet.

 

It is named after Saint Brendan and on his feast day, 16th May , many pilgrims climb the Saints Road to the summit.

At the summit lie the ruins of Saint Brendan’s Oratory.

 

Kil Chapel was also an older church of Saint Brendan and is good to visit.

 

At Ireland and Scotland Luxury Tours we take you on the very risky drive around Slea Head.

There are many tourists on the road who have pulled over their hire cars because they simply cannot cope with the conditions.

 

We like to visit the Beehive Huts and Mulcachy’s Pottery on the way around.

 

You will need to see the Dingle Peninsula and Mount Brandon on any tours of Ireland, or you will feel that you are missing something.
