Mount Gabriel not only provides a pretty great view of the peninsular but also features some mine shafts as well. We managed to find at least 3 mine shafts close in proximity to the road leading up to the mountain top, only one of which we couldn’t access. The remaining two mine shafts were quite small, tiny when compared to the copper mines in Allihies. The biggest of these two only went as far as, 30 meters before reaching a dead end.
According to mindat, Baryite was the main material being mined.
The view from the top is pretty great.
