The awe-inspiring Coomloughra Horseshoe >> is an extremely challenging route of up to 7+ hrs and most definitely NOT to be underestimated but unfortunately quite often is!!! It is a far stiffer challenge in bad weather and requires a decent level of fitness gained from regular exercise/gym work. Arguably one of the finest walks in the country, this 12km trek takes in 3 of Ireland’s highest mountains, Corrán Tuathail 1039m, Binn Chaorach 1010m and Cathair 1001m. This trek truly incapsulates what the wonderful McGillycuddy’s Reeks has to offer in terms of breath-taking views and hard earned ever exciting challenges. Being comfortable with heights, sheer drops and being prepared to use your hands is essential as this route involves scrambling over extremely steep rocky ground with no trails in potentially far from perfect weather conditions!!!
Well done to all the other local providers involved in this feature, a fantastic piece that showcases the wild landscapes and adventure we have right here on our doorstep in the wonderful Reeks District >>
