Carrauntoohil located in County Kerry is the highest mountain in Ireland. Standing 1,038 metres tall - it is the central peak of the Macgillycuddy's Reeks mountain range in Ireland.

The mountain is most often climbed from the north-east, along the Hag's Glen and up the steep Devil's Ladder to the col between Carrauntoohil and Cnoc na Péiste, and then north-west to the summit.

Caution and common sense is advised when climbing the mountain but aside from normal hiking gear, no special equipment is required.
