Nicely perched above Glengarriff
Short Summary created by thomas_g,  3 May 2013
Barraboy is best reached from the col between Esk and Barraboy which can be reached from the Beara way. It's also possible to access from the east but it's a long damp walk from Priests leap.
Views are very good south to the sea and North towards Barraduff. Knockboy is clearly visible to the East. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/579/comment/5338/

Parked at V93218 61229 A (barely room for one car) beside Beara Way stile. Over the stile and up the track, I left the track and went straight for the peak, but it's probably best to follow the track to the col and walk along the ridge enjoying the views down to the bay. The peak is marked by a large cairn. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/579/comment/14982/
