You'll be wanting tea with that!

As exasie commented, Father Ted's House is visible from the top of this hill and well worth a visit before or after your climb. It's only a short drive away, R308 959 A, from the start point.
Be sure to book in advance however.

If you park at R3338897783 B (room for one vehicle), you can access the hill thru the farm gate a few metres from you allowing you quick ascent to the summit. No access issues as the hill is located in The Burren National Park. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1286/comment/17604/

Easy peasy, Ted.....

I climbed this and the nearby Mullaghmore recently.

Not much of a challenge, but the terrain and views of the Burren are fantastic.

The only other notable thing about Knockanes is that you can see Father Ted's house..... Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1286/comment/17552/
