From the north side, it looks like a table mountain, from the other sides, it merges with the neighboring hills forming a single entity. Climbing up, the landscape changes, the bare peaks give the impression of a different, alien world. The ubiquitous peat bogs, collapsing and creating all sorts of shapes, pits and grooves in the ground, emphasize this feeling even more.
While climbing Benbulben, you have to be prepared for changeable weather conditions. Heavy showers interspersed with sunny spells may occur several times within one hour, not to mention unceasing winds. Sometimes you can observe helicopters flying below the level of the mountain over the neighboring woods.
Although Benbulben is the biggest and most distinctive object in the Sligo area, the whole Dartry mountain range is worth visiting. Not far from Benbulben, while coming back to Sligo, if you follow the road alongside the mountain, you will reach the Glencar Lake and Glencar Waterfall.
