The Slievanea ridge dominates the high centre of the western Dingle Peninsula.

To the west of Beenoskee, Slievanea, Croaghskearda, Windy Gap, and Knocknulanane are all on the same magnificent ridge, and salivatory walking, whether individually or together. Slievanea is said to be one of the best walks on the peninsula, especially if walked on the aforementioned ridge or with Slievenalecka and Slievenagower to the north-east, with northern corries and cliffs overlooking charming lakes, including Adoon. And on to Beenoskee if you desire.

East of Slievanea lie the lovely Coumanare lakes.
