Located on the Dingle Peninsula, Mount Brandon in West Kerry.

The mountain’s peak provides stunning, picturesque views of the Atlantic Ocean and the Dingle Peninsula.

Mount Brandon is the highest Irish mountain outside of the MacGillycuddy’s Reeks range in Ireland.

Brandon is named after Saint Brendan and is the end of a Christian pilgrimage trail known as “The Saint’s Route” (Cosán na Naomh).

There are a couple of different routes to reach the top, varying in difficulty.

During World War II, between 1940 and 1943, a number of Allied and Axis aircraft crashed on Brandon and the Faha Ridge.
