Dublin 8 to the Maamtutks
Having made a similar journey myself last month I agree with csd about how 'near' the Maamturks are from Dublin now. It is motorway from Liffey Valley in Dublin to the suburbs of Galway, with a minor stretch of regular dual carraigeway
at Athlone. Maam Cross is only up the road! I did get caught in Galways morning rush hour traffic though, which added considerably to the journey time. Coming home that night was only 2 1/2 hours though.

at Simons recent excellent talk on Summitteering he presented a map of Ireland with both the mountainous regions and the main road network highlighted. This showed how accessible the various upland areas are. He had even worked out which area would be best to live in in order to access the most amount of hills/mountains in a couple of hours driving. I think it was somewhere in Cork if I'm not mistaken! Go Jackill!
