This site, would probably rate a 5, if, I had been able to find the correct path, winding up the mountain. I will have to save it for another trip.

Keshcorran was a remarkable sight to enjoy the beautiful caves and the ancient stones dividing fields up the hillside! See the top cairns of Carrowkeel from the base. Lovely walk - bring your Wellies or hiking boots.
