dublin 7 summits

further information

Some things to be aware of before going out on the Dublin 7 Summits: 

  • Kilbride Rifle Range is bordered by mountains, including two of the Dublin arderins: Seefingan and Seehan. We suggest using Corrig Mountain (not an arderin and therefore not included in the challenge) to cross between Seehan and Seefingan to avoid descending into the range.


  • Anyone attempting this challenge should be able to navigate in poor visibility and have recced their route in advance.
