The Laharn Bog Loop walk is a moderate 5 hour (14km) loop walking route on paths and quiet country roads around the base of Beentee Mountain (376m) in Cahersiveen, Co. Kerry in the south west of Ireland. Although not a very high mountain, the views from here are spectacular if you decide to take an extra spur to the summit (add an extra hour for this). 
 

This route begins in the centre of Cahersiveen town and follows both the purple National Loop arrows and blue arrows from the Fair Green car park travelling up towards Carhan Lower from where you have a panoramic view of the town and Valentia Harbour. This part of the route is also on the Kerry Way (a long-distance route) which is signposted with yellow arrows and the little walking man sign.

There are plenty of other routes to suit beginners to advanced walkers in the area, so please find a route that is right for you or your group. There is also a much shorter loop walk on the western slopes of the mountain which starts and finishes at Garranebawn and can be seen below.

Plan your walk by checking the weather, sunrise sunset times and our hiking check list on our website https://www.activeme.ie/useful-info/planning-a-trip/. Please remember that you are only as fast as the slowest member of your group!
