Croaghmoyle is the site of an RTE/Emergency Services/Dept of Justice/Defence telecommunications mast and therefore has a road running right to the Summit. It has excellent views overlooking Beltra Lake and out to Croagh Patrick and the islands of Clew bay. Looking east on a clear day one can see all the way to Roscommon and to the north all the way to Downpatrick head. The access road (partially surfaced but lots of chippings and badly detioriated in places) is accesable off the R312 Castlebar to Belmullet road or beter still to approach from the Castlebar to Glenisland road via Rathbawn rd in the town, proceed out about 4 miles past the water tower on your right and take a right just beyond the lake at the misdirected sign for Nephin Drive. The summit walk from the parking space at this junction (approx 5 miles round trip) is very popular with Castlebar walkers. Watch out for the boy racers (for which this is a popular congregating point) and the midges on summer evening. The forestry in here used be a summer roosting point for cuckoos but in recent years with extensive tree harvesting their presence hasn't been as obvious.
