One way to reach Barnahowna is as part of a grand walk starting from the middle of the Partrys. From Tourmakeady take the road east over the range, turning off to reach a point on a minor but passable road at around M027705 D. Between you and the route to Barnahowna are various fields which when I passed in late April one year were full of noisy sheep and lambs. Avoid the farming by walking west on the road and turning north east at its end onto a rough track which leads towards forestry. From here rough moorland stretches to Barnahowna.

At around M018700 E you can see the view below of the stumps of a long gone wood. Walk about SW over the rough ground to reach the summit nearly 3k away. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/421/comment/1672/
