Ireland

Welcome to QMD: Quality Mountain Days. Dedicated to helping you achieve quality days in the mountains. All walks are written up as basic route descriptions with some grid references. They are provided as a ‘Bare Bones Template’ for the walk. There are many interesting features and sites, wildlife and plants, viewpoints and alternatives, to each walk. Part of the adventure is finding these for yourselves.

Ireland is a fantastic country for QMDs and blessed with some magnificent ranges. Not only that, the criteria for QMDs used by Mountaineering Ireland are more robust than those applied in the UK and are worth considering along with those from Mountain Training UK.

Mangerton Mountain

Fantastic Mountain. Mangerton summit itself is a vast boggy escarpment. The summit has a cairn and a weather station and can’t be missed. We were told by a fellow walker, ‘you’ll need a gps to find the summit in this mist’. We found the summit; map and compass with a bit of pacing, hit it bang on.
