Cronin’s Yard has been used as the
traditional starting point for ascents of Ireland’s highest
mountain, Carrauntoohil. Situated at the entrance to the
Hag’s Glen at Mealis, Beaufort, this is the gateway to the
MacGillycuddy’s Reeks and an ideal base from which to
explore the surrounding countryside. With ample car parking
facilities in place Cronin’s Yard offers the walker/climber a
selection of services from packed lunches to a well deserved
hot shower after a long day on Ireland’s premier mountain range.
