Access details for west side
by ciaranc  5 Jan 2011
Just a little more detail for access to the quick and easy way up Mweelrea from the west

From the road to silver strand (the last road in Mayo), park by the pink house at the Cul de Sac (just a T shape, really) sign. There's a pile of gravel there just now, but this may not last. Ignore the gate into the field but instead go up the farm track towards Mweelrea (trees and then a shed on your left). The track ends at a gate; once through the gate you're on open ground all the way to Mweelrea.

The west side is enormously simpler than the other approaches, but also less dramatic. With two kids (10 and 12) we were up and down in 3.5 hours; fast walkers would do it in 2 to 2.5. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/34/comment/6191/
