Carrauntoohil Mountain Via Devil's Ladder Trail is a 7.3 mile lightly trafficked out and back trail located near the city of Killarney that features beautiful wild flowers and is rated as difficult. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, nature trips, and birding and is accessible from April until September.
A gorgeous hike to the top of the tallest mountain in Ireland. Though there are several different routes up Carrauntoohil, the Devil's Ladder is the most common tourist route. Most of the "ladder" itself has become eroded and loose rock makes the scramble up and down exciting, but very rewarding.
