Discover Slieve Carr

A demanding mountain with serious charm

Slieve Carr is not a mountain accessible to all walkers. The significant difference in height, coupled with its high altitude, makes it a difficult and sometimes dangerous mountain. So you will have 2 choices to discover it:

  • Many will be able to be satisfied to admire it from the road and appreciate its majesty.
  • While the bravest will be able to try to tackle it (group start is mandatory for more safety, with the necessary equipment)

The view from the top of Slieve Carr is breathtaking and will take you overlooking the entire park with its 11,000 hectares of wilderness and mountains.

Down below, don’t miss the peaceful little lakes in the valley, as well as its expanses of deserted moorland.

It’s worth a look!
