There is a hillfort on summit known as the round O [PNCW]. MacNeill (235) also mentions three wells on its lower slopes named Tobernasleiga, Tobergorey and Tobersool. Price interprets Tinoran as Tigh an Odhráin, without explaining the offending presence of the article before a personal name (Odhrán). More likely is that the n comes from the urú caused by teach, which was a neuter noun in Old Irish.   Tinoran Hill is the 1123th highest summit in Ireland.

Short walks, archaeology with obscured views on this wooded top.
Short Summary created by simon3,  16 Feb 2014
Although the summit has an interesting position overlooking the west of the Wicklow Mountains and towards the Blackstairs, the views are somewhat obscured by trees. For short walks there are some forest roads and some relatively open planting. There is interesting archaelogical remains at the top.
Access is possible from S846 903 A. Follow the track up to the forest and when you enter take a left turn. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/946/comment/5705/

Picture: The summit of Tinoran
wicklore on Tinoran Hill, 2008
by wicklore  13 Sep 2008
At S846 903 on map 55 there is a gravel track. I drove up this track and it quickly branches. The right hand track leads to a private house. A locked gate blocks the track leading straight ahead. I enquired at the farm on the left and was told this is a Coillte access track and they keep the gate locked. The farmer said it is ok to park at this locked gate, but not to block the track leading to the private house. There are no signs to indicate this is a Coillte access road.
I followed the track in an easterly direction, passing through two more gates. A few minutes walking brought me to forest tracks which lead to the top of Tinoran. From my car it was about 20 minutes to the top.
The summit is wooded and it is not possible to see across to the Wicklow mountains. The remains of the hillfort are partly visible over a wide area. There is no appreciable ‘summit’ to this hill but I did find a few scattered rocks between four trees that might once have been a summit marker.
By stepping out of the forest to the south I had views down to the Blackstairs, but they were shrouded in cloud.
I also found an old birdwatchers tree house at the summit. I climbed it to get the views north and east over Wicklow. However the trees were too high and blocked the view. Judging by the state of it, it probably hasn’t been used in years.
Nothing inspiring or unusual about Tinoran Hill except the abundance of rabbits on the way up. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/946/comment/3304/

wicklore on Tinoran Hill, 2008
by wicklore  13 Sep 2008
Those willing to climb right up onto the platform of this tree house on the summit of Tinoran might get good views over to the mountains of the Glen of Imaal. I climbed most of the way but the wood was slippy and I didn’t climb high enough to clear the trees for the view. The discovery of this old tree house should be tucked away as a useful titbit of information! Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/946/comment/3305/

Come back when the trees are cut.
by simon3  1 May 2010
Following in wicklore's meticulously described footsteps I would have to agree with him. A viewless summit. At the moment it is in the bottom 10 as regards summit rating on the whole island. Still, judging by the size of the sitka spruce trees, there is going to be harvesting in the next few years and it may then be possible to use the unique position (most westerly in the Dublin/ Wicklows) to get good views to the South West.
If you are going there, read up on the archaeological features. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/946/comment/4654/

Peek-a-boo with the views
by csd  16 May 2010
While a dose of felling would certainly improve the views from Tinoran, I believe there are worse summits than this sylvan peak. As well as the lapine population (which was still very much in evidence), the local bird population also appears to be large and diverse, and a nice vista over to Mt Leinster is possible if you look for it.
The track that wicklore mentions looks like a private driveway, starting at a gate with yellow gate posts, and has a sign advertising fresh eggs for sale on it. If you don't want to park on the track itself, there's room for a few cars out on the main R747 roadway. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/946/comment/4736/

Gateway to Hill
by eamonoc  9 Apr 2011
8/4/2011. The roadside gate at the gravel path described by Wicklore S846 903, was locked. There is room for one or two cars on the road just to one side of the gate, crossed the gate and another locked one uphill about a minute later . Now a grassy track leads to another locked gate which I climbed to be confronted by another locked gate took woodland track to the left and followed this all the way to the top. No views but it was a beautiful morning and the sunlight shining through the trees made up for lost views. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/946/comment/6297/
