From the Nire Valley car park lace up the boots and walk back the road towards Ballymacarbery
for about 500 meters. You'll come to a gate on your left with a muddy track leading down the slope towards the river.
Cross the river over a makeshift bridge the farmer has constructed and follow the rising track towards the mountains.
After passing a ruined farmhouse the track leads through a galvanised gate and out across the bog.
The track actually goes much further than shown on the map and although in places it is indistinct, you can follow it all the way to S28313 11290 with little difficulty.
Take a few minutes rest among the scattered moraine boulders of the Coumalocha ,
also known as Lough Coumstillogemore and |Lough Coumstillogebeg on older maps, before tackling the very steep ascent to Coumfea West Top.
This looks quite tricky from below and certainly as you near the top there is a stretch of 20-30 meters of very exposed almost knife-edge to negotiate.
As you skirt the cliff edges views of the Galtys, the Knockmealdowns ,Slievenamon and the sea at Dungarvan open up around you.
Puzzle for a while over where the summits of Coumfea and Coumfea North Top actually are (see if you can spot the meagre piles of stones).
Then head down the hillside to rejoin the track you walked in on and, after a welcome cuppa in the shelter on the scattered rocks at the track end,back to the car and home to a hot bath and a beer. 12.5 kms and 5 hours ambling.
