Dublin 8 to the Maamtutks
Having made a similar journey myself last month I agree with csd about how 'near' the Maamturks are from Dublin now. It is motorway from Liffey Valley in Dublin to the suburbs of Galway, with a minor stretch of regular dual carraigeway
at Athlone. Maam Cross is only up the road! I did get caught in Galways morning rush hour traffic though, which added considerably to the journey time. Coming home that night was only 2 1/2 hours though.

at Simons recent excellent talk on Summitteering he presented a map of Ireland with both the mountainous regions and the main road network highlighted. This showed how accessible the various upland areas are. He had even worked out which area would be best to live in in order to access the most amount of hills/mountains in a couple of hours driving. I think it was somewhere in Cork if I'm not mistaken! Go Jackill!

Cullaun: A quick bag.

Aidand's directions are spot on. The road that looks like an entrance to a house actually leads into a forest, it is rough but manageable if you drive very slow. I drove as far as an old abandoned...

Collaborative entry Last edit by: Peter Walker 3 weeks ago.
You can start at Ballaghisheen, a mountain pass V671 792. Space here for 3-4 cars. Ballaghisheen is at just over 300m so the climb to the top at around 551m is not a great strain. There is a sign ...

Cooneen Hill: Very average

Nothing to add to simon3's directions. Like quite a few of the hills in North Tipperary, this one is through a Coilte forest track to begin with and then the tough push through some horrible groun...
