This summit is located about 1.5 kms SW of Nowen Hill in West Cork. It can be accessed from the road that runs up to Nowen Hill although you do need to negotiate your way through some trees, fences and some boggy ground. It is probably not the nicest or best way to approach this summit. There are some access issues with the road that runs up to Nowen and the way through the forest on the way is boring as the views are blocked. If I was going to do this summit again, I'd probably look into approaching it from the road that runs 2 kms to the West and take in Derreenacrinnig West along the way. At least with this route, you will have constant views of West Cork. The summit itself is marked by a trig point which has seen better days. The view from here is really nice as you can see Bantry Bay and the Beara peninsula to the South-West. Looking North-West, you can see the peaks around Knockboy, the highest in County Cork.
