Carrigroe is a small hill eight miles inland from the sea, which commands a widespread view of the coastal plain between Courtown and Wexford Harbour and looks westward over the pleasant countryside surrounding Ferns… On the last Sunday of July, known as Fraughan Sunday, people went to the hill to pick berries... On top of the hill is a cleft rock called the Giant's Bed (Máire MacNeill, 'The Festival of Lughnasa', p. 229).   Carrigroe Hill is the 1321th highest summit in Ireland. Carrigroe Hill is the second most easterly summit in the North Wexford area.

Looking for a sign!
by eamonoc  7 Jan 2014
Ascended Carrigroe on Thursday 2/01/2014. Started at T0952150139, followed Dessie1`s excellent directions into the forest and saw a green sign with 1 on it. I followed in the direction it pointed towards into a lovely wooded area, easily negoitated between the mature trees and was looking for the white markers. I could spot none so after about two minutes walking I headed steeply uphill towards a large Limestone boulder and I spotted another Green sign with the number three on it sitting in a hollow of a tree. I kept going uphill and eventually came out into a small cllearing where I was able to follow the faint traces of a path to the Trig point. Retraced my steps back to the tree with Green sign 1 on it and found another broken sign with the number two on it. Even without the signs the route to the summit is fairly straighforward.
