The Irish Munros

In 1891, Sir Hugh Munro published a list of Scottish peaks that were over 3,000 feet. Over time, any peak or summit over 3,000 feet in Britain and Ireland came to be known as a Munro and additional lists were published showing the Munros in England, Wales and Ireland. The peaks on the list shown below are the 14 Irish Munros.


  1. The list shown below is based on the information on the MCI web site which in turn was based on original information from a Joss Lynam. 
  2. For a peak to be included, the height gain from the highest saddle is at least 15m.
