If there is one mountain in Ireland that myself and my friend Dean visit year in year out it has to be Benwisken in Co Sligo. This mountain has a unique unforgiving look and it catches the eye immediately.

The views from the top are nothing short of breathtaking with views of the Atlantic Ocean and Sligo Town and you can even see as far as Bundoran in Co Donegal, weather depending of course.

The best views of Benwisken can be found from the N15 Sligo to Bundoran road but also from the Gleniff Horseshoe where you can also see the likes of Grainne and Diarmuids Cave and the ruins of the old Schoolhouse underneath.
