Summer Solstice on Carrauntoohil


We're rapidly approaching the longest day of the year, a long celebrated pagan date, and as you've probably seen we're running a night ascent of Carrauntoohil. What better way to celebrate this, than to stand on Ireland's highest mountain on the longest day of the year, just as dawn breaks and sunrise fills the sky...

The final countdown for bookings has begun as places are filling quickly and Sunday night is looming. Click here to book or contact Nathan / Ruth on info@outdoorsireland.com or +353 (0) 86 860 45 63.

Make an exciting and unique Summer Solstice night ascent of Carrauntoohil, in darkness with head torches and guides. Stand on the summit of Ireland's highest mountain at dawn to savour the early morning calm and hopefully sunrise over the MacGillycuddy Reeks... After descending Carrauntoohil in the dawn light, enjoy a huge freshly cooked breakfast in Killarney.

Meet at midnight just outside Killarney for registration and gear check. Then drive to the base of Carrauntoohil for a four to five hour walk to the summit. Relax on the summit to watch the sun rise over the Gap of Dunloe and MacGillycuddy Reeks at approximately 5am, weather permitting. Descend down through glaciated corries and high cliffs and finish this unique experience with a huge freshly cooked breakfast in Killarney at approximately 9am.
