On first glance the Comeraghs can be a little daunting to the would-be walker with steep and dark coums presenting a stiff challenge on multiple sides. For some though, that spectacular scenery is more than enough reason for a visit. On a previous visit I hadn’t had the chance for more than an introduction so I hooked up with fellow guide Milly from exploremore.ie to get to know them a bit better with a south to north traverse of the range.

We found a very helpful and friendly local at the caravan/camping site of ‘Powers The Pot’. The owner Niall and his dog Kevin not only provided a safe place to park but very kindly dropped us to our start point at Kilclooney.
