A northerly approach from the townland of Roads

Leave the N72 Ring of Kerry road between Kilorglin and Cahersiveen and head towards Kells Bay. Pass the sign for the beach and where the road forks take the higher road. There is parking for 3-4 cars in a layby at V53025 87288 C.
Walk back along the road for approx 300m where you will see a stile at V53349 87382 D. Follow an indistinct path to a fence corner marked by a 'yellow man' post. Follow the obvious track which makes it way steadily uphill to the col overlooking Glendalough lakes at V52009 85016 E. Head in a North easterly direction for a kilometre to reach Kells mountain with Kells mountain East top a further 500m away Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/224/comment/18439/
