Galtymore   

 

The GalteeMountains or Galtys

 

(Irish: Na Gaibhilte or Sléibhte na gCoillte) are a mountain range in Munster, located in Ireland’s Golden Vale.

Galtymore reaches a height of 917m (3,009 ft) the highest of the Galty Mountains and the 14th highest peak in Ireland.   

The North face shows much evidence of glacial erosion.   It harbours a number of corrie glaciers, most of which are now occupied by loughs:

Lough Diheen lies between Galtymore and Galtybeg

Lough Curra lies between Galtymore and Slievecushnabinna.

A popular starting point to climb Galtymore is the ‘Black Road’ which can be accessed from the N8 Dublin to Cork road near the villages of Skeheenarinky and Kilbehenny, and it can also be accessed from King’s Yard.

With showering facilities now available at Kilbehenny Community Centre,

many visitors are delighted to return to Kilbehenny to freshen up, and enjoy hot food.

The village of Kilbehenny itself has a local shop, where you can purchase supplies for the climb.
