Re: Parking for the Hydro Road
by hivisibility  3 Jun 2013
For all those interested in attempting the Coomloughra horseshoe you may be interested to know that at the beginning of the Hydro Road there is now a fantastic car park, on the left as you travel from the direction of Beaufort and just before the old quarry working. Reference V772871 A. Room for over 30 cars and well tarmaced. Was fairly busy there today. Access to the hydro road straight up from the car park, beside the Kerry mountain rescue sign. An excellent facility. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/3/comment/15003/
