Take your time, and savour
Short Summary created by jackill,  14 Jan 2012
Park in the Nire Valley car park S 277 128 A, room for 20 cars, but note this fills up fast on weekends, walk up hill on a grassy then heatherly slope from the easten edge of the carpark following approximately a line of white wooden posts.
Walk through a small gate on a sheep fence and follow the track uphill, downhill then gently uphill again to the gapS301 133 B.
Do not cross the stile here but turn NW keeping the fence, and an increasing vertical drop, to your right. There is a fence to be crossed just below the outcrop of rocks before the summit.
An excellent ridge walk, especially if you continue on to Knocksheegowna. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/74/comment/4834/
