Galtymore   

(Cnoc Mór na nGaibhlte)

Galtymore eaches a height of 919m , 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 delicious hot food, prepared by our wonderful volunteers.   

We hope you enjoy these photos and explore the beautiful

Galtee Mountains!
