Parked just past the Pink house in Dadreen, west of Mweelrea. If you can see the beach at Carrickwee then turn around and park at the first available parking spot. From here there is an access path following a stream which saves you climbing over a couple of fences. This leads you directly to the base of Mweelrea. Round trip time in great weather was 4 hours. This seems to be a much easier hike than coming from the Delphi side but is probably not as spectacular. It's the easiest way to the peak and is really just a bit of a boring bog hop but the view from the top is incredible. Could see all the Bens to the south and Croagh Patrick in the distance. Next time I'll do the horseshoe from Delphi. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/34/comment/1860/
