An Triúr Deirféar,[1] (The Three Sisters in Irish) are a group of three peaks at the northwestern end of the Dingle Peninsula in County Kerry, Ireland.

Geography[edit]

The hills are situated just to the north of the village of Baile an Fheirtéaraigh. Binn Diarmada elevation is 153 m.[2]

Etymology[edit]

The names of the little peaks are from the westerly most hill, Binn Hanrai, Binn Meanach and Binn Diarmada. Though they are called "the three sisters" none of them have a female name associated with them.
