Waterford.   Gibbet Hill is the second highest hill in the North Wexford area and the 1114th highest in Ireland. Gibbet Hill is the most westerly summit and also the second most northerly in the North Wexford area.

Furze Free
by Geansai  13 Nov 2011
I followed in Wicklore's footsteps but I didn't drive up as far as the coillte gate as the track was very bad. I just parked at the junction of the track and the road, where there's enough space to park well away from a farm gate opposite, so as not to block it while remaining well off the main road and not blocking the junction. The way is is signposted with arrows from the coillte gate. Give the beech tree corridor a miss ( There's furze at the end of it before you get back on the track ) and stay on the track uphill. You'll come to a crossroads of sorts- the track you're on veers sharply to the right with arrow signposts indicating thats the way you should go. Furthur uphill you'll come to a junction. Turn left and after several hundred yards, watch out for a small mucky track going to the right, and uphill through the vegatation. Horses have been up here and its nothing but muck which you can avoid by dancing round the grassy edges. At the end of it by a fence you can see the summit to your right and its an easy stroll over. The town of Carnew can be seen to the north. On the way down a horse and rider emerged downhill from the beech tree corridor and continued straight down after crossing the track. I was wondering how they could ride horses up the narrow mucky track but this guy made it look easy. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/938/comment/6623/
