  • Carrauntoohil is the highest peak in Ireland. Located in County Kerry, it is 1,038 metres high and is the central peak of the Macgillycuddy's Reeks range. The ridge northward leads to Ireland's second-highest peak, Beenkeragh, while the ridge westward leads to the third-highest peak, Caher. Carrauntoohil overlooks three bowl-shaped valleys, each with its own lakes. To the east is Hag's Glen or Coomcallee, to the west is Coomloughra and to the south is Curragh More. A steel Christian cross, 5 metres tall, was erected on the summit in 1976 but was cut down by vandals in November 2014. Carrauntoohil is classed as a Furth by the Scottish Mountaineering Club, i.e. a three thousander footer furth or "outside of" Scotland, which is why it is sometimes referred to as one of the Irish Munros.
