The name Muckish is derived from ‘Mhucais’ which translates as ‘pig’s back’. Known for its beautiful flat terrain, the place offers a unique sense of nature’s wonders. Standing tall at 666 metres, the mountain has a massive cairn and a cross on the northern edge of the summit plateau.

There are two commonly used routes up the mountain- Muckish Gap and the ‘Miners Track’ up the Northern side of the mountain, part of which follows the path used by workers to reach a former quarry.

Highlights include:

  • Beautiful flat and rocky terrain.
  • If you are lucky you can see Deers in the vicinity.

A photographic view embraces all its visitors with the most tranquil ambience.
