If you like low undramatic hills covered in coniferous forestry, with an out-of-the-way vibe, than this is the place for you.
Being the lazy sort, I was a mite disappointed to discover the gates described by Salamander (grid ref R5295 8975 B) locked. So it was on with the boots and up the tarred road. We were soon into low cloud, but it wasn't long before the RTE transmission tower and buildings loomed out of the gloom. The unmarked summit is no more than a rise in the grass beside the tower. The low cloud reduced visibility, but I'm not sure we were missing much.
You should be up and down in about an hour. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/838/comment/4047/
