There is room for several cars to park at the road junction at M099943 E, as mentioned by pj. It's a straight forward ascent, following the track all the way to the summit. There are a few notices along the track, warning of landslides in heavy rain, and several are visible on the slopes of the small 384 pt top to the west of the track. Some debris has reached across the track, so not a route for a rainy day then.

On the return, the views open out towards Clew Bay, Nephin Beg range and Croagh Patrick, which were hidden from view, behind you, on your ascent. The GPS gave the return distance as 8.82 km and a time of 2 hrs 13 min. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/686/comment/5942/
