It featured very largely in the Irish psyche and culture back in the nineties on account of the controversy surrounding a proposed interpretive centre. During & after this long debate, Mullaghmore became central in our attitude to the environment, specifically the preservation of wilderness, access   Mullagh More is the 1416th highest summit in Ireland. Mullagh More is the second most easterly summit in the West Clare area.

Short Summary created by aidand,  4 May 2016
There is a way marked route up this iconic mountain. To get to the start drive out of Corofin in the direction of Kilfenora. After less than 2 miles turn right at a sign for 'Kilnaboy Church and School'. Drive 3 miles up this road until you reach a parking area on the right. There is a choice of way-marked routes from here. Father Ted's house is a mile further up this road.
Allow about 2.5 to 3 hours. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1390/comment/17881/

New Comment: A spectacular landscape
by Damian120  18 Apr 2017
The trails are well marked out, I ended up doing the Blue Trail on a fine Easter Monday. This landscape seems to defy nature and hiking the Blue Trail this phenomenon is experienced every step of the way. It's described as very difficult on the official Burren National Park website, not too sure about that. I found it somewhat easier but either way it's a fantastic trail Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1390/comment/18889/

The Way Nature ought to Be?
by Pepe  17 Mar 2015
Uninterpreted, that is - except by the individual on his or her walk? If you were to ask people in general to name a mountain in Clare chances are they would name this one. It entered public consciousness in a big way back in the nineties over a controversial plan to build an interpretive centre. The plans were shot down so now it stands in all its natural glory, untainted by the diggers and shovels. And what a glorious place it is: limestone rocks full of grykes that shelter the Burren's famous flora and fauna, and while you're there take a short hike up Sliabh Rua, which has even more interesting limestone whorls than Mullaghmore.
Getting there is easy. Turn right off the R476 Corofin-Kilnaboy road and drive a few miles into the Burren National Park. Stop the car or bike at a map & info board on your left. The path takes you down around Lough Gealain and then up along a landscape that looks like it belongs to another planet. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/1390/comment/17884/
