Crag features
Perhaps the finest example of a corrie or coum in Europe, Coumshingaun is the most famous landmark in the Comeragh mountains.

Access notes
Approach - It is best approached from the Carrick on Suir to Dungarvan road. The most traditional and most gentle approach involves parking at Kilclooney bridge (GR. 348115), entering through a gate to the west, crossing a stream from which a vague path may be followed to the west. This track is more defined once you gain the open mountain.

An alternative and shorter approach involves parking at Kilclooney wood (GR. 342103), follow a track through the woods from the north west corner of the car-park until you meet a forest road, turn right and follow this to the forest boundary, follow the fence to the corner of the forest from where some sheep tracks may be followed to the lake. This latter approach saves about fifteen minutes.
