A summit with a visitors book
Short Summary created by sandman, jackill,  25 May 2015
Park at the forestry entrance at R 70274 16868 A, room for 5 cars Walk along forestry tracks turning right at a Y junction and then keep left at a T junction following a defined tract to meet up with the Darragh Hills Loop Walk now turning right up hill to the summit, a distinctive, large, rocky, conglomorate outcrop which sits on old Red Sandstone. Carrigeenamronety is also of note because of the large population on the rare Killarney Fern that grows on its slopes. It is a protected species listed in the EU habitats directive and the Flora protection order of 1999 Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/825/comment/5584/

jackill on Carrigeenamronety, 2007
by jackill  4 Sep 2007
Carrigeenamronety (or should it be Kilcruaig?) is easily accessed from the forestry entrance at R 70274 16868. It is an easy walk along forestry tracks to gain the summit a distinctive, large, rocky, conglomorate outcrop which sits on old Red Sandstone. Carrigeenamronety is also of note because of the large population on the rare Killarney Fern the grows on its slopes a protected species listed in the EU habitats directive and the Flora protection order of 1999. This is the first mountain I have ever been to with a Visitors book. I seems to have been put there by a Sean Maloney. Browsing through the book it seems quite a few people make the journey to this summit.Its housed in a biscuit tin but Sean might like to know that all the biscuits are now gone so I was left hungry.

One for all the family
by acorn  16 Aug 2013
Kids will love this one. An easy(ish) walk, a visitors book and a geocache.

Plenty parking at R70274 16868. The brown Castlegale Hillfort sign will guide you. After passing through the barrier watch out for a loopwalk post on the right with red, blue and purple arrows, approx 130m. I passed it out and only noticed it when I turned back. You are now following the loop walk arrows in reverse! Head uphill through the trees for 150m to the next post where the signed path swings left to ascend through the forestry beside a mossy bank. Follow the posts and you will come to a stile on the right at the highest point of the walk. Once over the stile follow the worn path 200m to the little trig point. Watch out for slippery tree roots on descent. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/825/comment/15074/

Alternative route
by aniedolini  7 Feb 2011
There is an alternative but slightly more challenging route to the summit. Walk a short distance from the entrance (on north side) along the forest track, looking out for a post displaying a red? arrow pointing right. Follow this along a forest path, which soon begins to climb steeply, continuing up to the summit. Castle Gale (to the east) can also be accessed by continuing along the track passing the north side of the summit and following a path in a south easterly direction - see photo. Good views of north Cork, south east Limerick, south west Tipperary and west Waterford. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/825/comment/6215/

There are biscuits again
by thomas_g  19 Apr 2013
I took the opportunity to put a chocolate biscuit in the biscuit box today in case Jackill is visiting again. I also found a geo-cache hidden near the trig point (they got a biscuit too).
it's a lovely view for very little effort.
Follow the looped walk markers for a very quick and direct way back down. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/825/comment/14973/
