I climbed from the east. Park in a layby on the west side of Lough Derg, about a mile or two
north of Killaloe. Follow markers for East Clare Way through forestry plantations. When the East
Clare Way turns left and sharply downhill, continue straight ahead and look out for a firebreak on the right before the track starts going downhill. Walk along the firebreak which ends very quickly
in a clearing. You then need to turn right to find a rough track which goes uphill between newly planted trees and mature forest. At the end of the track go through a double gate and follow a fence uphill through moorland. After a few minutes cross the fence and bear left uphill to reach the summit. This is marked by a variety of poles of different lengths and what appears to be the remains of a corrugated iron shed.

Overall a rather tedious route - I suspect there are better ways of reaching the summit. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/390/comment/1179/
