From the cross roads in Bangor (861231 A), walk north up a minor road which shortly turns left, at the next corner 859234 B go right through a gate onto a rough track. This runs towards a ruined house, but soon after going through the gate there is a track junction, turn right here and follow this track up hill, pass a wrecked car and continue onto the telecommunication aerials at Srahanarry.

From here walk up hill (beside then passed some cables on the ground) to the first summit and then out to the actual summit of Carrafull. Another great North Mayo view point, despite its modest height. Return is by way of your ascent.

The track & Masts mentioned above are not shown on the older OS series, the track that is shown is overgrown and best avoided. Trackback: http://mountainviews.ie/summit/983/comment/3719/
