Due to the apparent problems described here by other users with regard to access, I too took the TV road to the summit. Even as TV roads go its a bit unwelcoming compared to Mt. Leinster or Kippure. Parking is restrictive, you have to leave your car propped up against a ditch on a narrow road, its hard to enjoy a walk when your car is left somewhat exposed! The views are amazing though, you can even see across to the sea cliffs of Slieve League! I didn't encounter anyone on my quick power walk to the top (I wanted to get back to the car!!!). The summit cairn can be found by walking between the two sections of the TV buildings at the top. Its a pity about the access problems as this is one of the most unusual and visually stunning areas in Ireland. Even on the loop road up to the gates of the TV road, no trespass signs are much in evidence Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/201/comment/2722/
