Short Summary created by jackill,  29 Aug 2010
Park at B83863 33065 A on a grassy roadside with room for 2 cars and walk back the road towards Min an Chladdaigh to B84042 33123 B where you turn right up a turf track.
This allows easy unobstructed access to the mountain with none of the potential issues caused by the many houses scattered on the west side of the mountain.
The turf track peters out after a few hundred meters but continue upwards skirting the steep cliff around to the right over short heather and you will be at the summit in 20 minutes.
The summit is beyond doubt one of the best coastal viewpoints on this island Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/939/comment/5698/
