Updated Summary:
Fly by summit
Short Summary created by liz50,  8 Oct 2017
You can choose to park in a layby at M47093 96666 A and walk a total distance of 400m by crossing the main road to Knock Airport and following a narrow tarmac road uphill, turning right at the top to the summit which is beside a telecommunications mast or you can drive up. There is a view over Knock Airport from the top with the mountains of North Mayo in the background. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1275/comment/15519/
 
You could actually fly and climb this one !

Take the turn off for the airport than park one km along at a layby (M47093 96666 A). You than walk up road opposite to top and turn right at the top walk 200 metres to Telecommunications mast the high point lies a few metres west in a small outcrop (although it is arguable if the soil dumped at the east side is higher). In fact this is the only hill you can fly to and walk to if you should be so inclined as it is only one km from the airport ! Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1275/comment/15859/

Picture: Knock Hill and airport.
Not Pretty!!
by paddyhillsbagger  14 Apr 2014
A rather disappointing hill scarred with quarry works, masts, perimeter fence and an airport! 10 minutes up and down. There is a conifer tree by the rocky outcrop of the top in the picture taken from the earthworks which appear higher. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1275/comment/16003/
