Introduction

This table lists all of Irelands mountains over 2000ft. The mountains listed are those that fit the criteria of Hewitts (Hill in England, Wales or Ireland over Two Thousand feet high) i.e. those mountains that have an altitude of 2000ft and a prominence of at least 30m. The methodology used in selecting the summit is thus: any summit surrounded by four or more 10-metre contour lines is automatically included, any summit with only one or two 10-metre contours is excluded, while summits with exactly three 10-metre contours have been studied in more detail, and are included if there is a reasonable doubt about whether they should qualify for inclusion. In practice this means that a few of the summits may have only 25-29 metres of re-ascent, but it seems best to include them in case the Ordnance Survey manage to find an extra metre or two on future editions of the relevant maps!


The List

The tables are interactive; click on the photo to be taken to a photo of the mountain (obviously), click on the name of the mounatain to go to its SP Mountain/Rock page (if one exists) and click on the region to be taken to a Range/Area page (also if one exists). The map number included in each table is for Ordnance Survey Ireland 1:50 000 Discovery Series sheet that the mountain appears on.
