As mentioned by Bruno follow a single track road leading to Ballard. New-ish blue-on-white signs will direct you to a small parking area (M 072 539 A) good for about 4 cars. Proceed over the ladder style and follow the track uphill, grassy then boggy and some sections quite steep. Old turf fields are in evidence near the top, reason that the track exists at all.

I wanted to share the picture of Benlevy, taken from the track up neighbouring Teeranea hill leading to Bohaun. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/758/comment/6752/
