I studied a year at the UCD due to the exchange-programm Erasmus. I took a week off and drove with my girlfriend to the Dingle Bay. One fine day during this week I climbed Mount Brandon. My girlfriend couldn't come with me as she was pregnant with our son Francesco.
I told her I would come home late because I read that a trip to the top takes you 6hours at a tourist-information.
I reached the top in 1hour and 50 minutes. For me as I live in Titol/Austria, Mount Brandon is just a hill, but it is a beautiful hill with a tremendous overlook!!!
It is definetely worth a hike and it was my first irish summit.
I especially liked the sheeps that can be met all the way up.
