WATCH: Drone video captures the majesty of Ireland’s highest mountain on a beautiful winter’s day

As if you needed another excuse to visit Kerry…

Not only does the Kingdom have some of the most stunning scenery, some of the warmest hospitality and some of the best Gaelic footballers in Ireland, it’s also home to its highest peak.

That peak, of course, is Carrauntoohil, part of the Macgillycuddy's Reeks and it was scaled last week by Michael Meade, who was good enough to send us on some wonderful footage of the experience.

Michael climbed Carrauntoohil on a day when there was barely a cloud in the sky (Wednesday, January 4) and the views from the snow-capped peak is nothing short of spectacular.

It’s a fair old hike to the top, but as you can see below, it’s well worth it.
