Kings Yard Knocknagalty
Maybe its just me living in the back of beyond or possibly is this one of Irelands best kept secrets?.
A friend and I recently stumbled across Kings Yard on a Sunday trip to the Galtys.
It really was a case of follow the breadcrumbs from Galty castle wood just outside Kilbehenny.
This farmyard has opened a carpark, toilets and coffee/tea/chocolate facilities(and they are all in pristine condition) specifically for walkers. A modest 2 is all that is requested for carparking.
It offers a new , enjoyable access route to Galtymore via an excellent farmtrack up Knocknagalty that peters out below the ridge at about 700 meters. You can use this as the basis of a circuit taking in Galtymore and Galtybeg and returning using a section of the black road as we did. I'll post this route on Mountainviews soon. Altternatively it should be possible to circle in the opposite direction over to Lyrnacappul and back over Monabrack.
So give up yer ould black road and support a local farmer who has made an effort for us walkers!
