Abbey Hill is easily accessible and offers a great 'Burren' experience. It has fantastic views across Galway Bay and the surrounding Burren hills and landscape. Start from a good track just off the main road, go through a gap in the wall and head up over classic 'clint' and 'grike' limestone features. Take care with footing as there are many fissures or 'grikes' to slip into. The summit had a large cylindrical cairn. I descended direct north to the good track below but this required concentration on the steep rocky slopes. This is a compact walk and gives you a great sense of this Burren karst region
