Get Lost Mountaineering

You are here: Ireland

This section covers the whole of the island of Ireland.

All the 13 Irish 3000 footers are posted and many other hills as well.  Everything above 2000 feet in the East, South,  South West, West, Noth and North East is posted plus some lower hills.  Only a few hills in the North West (Donegal area) remain to be posted.  These hills are the Croaghgorm & Lavagh More range (Blue Stack Mountains), Slieve Snaght (north of Derry), Slieve Snaght (Donegal, west of Letterkenny), Errigal Mountain, Muckish Mountain and Dooish.

An excellent book to buy for those interested in the highest tops is  "The Top 500 Summits" by Barry K. Smith.  It covers the mountains in England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales.  It should be available in any decent outdoor shop.
