Dessie1 - does it HAVE to be Coomloughra?
I mean, if you have two cars and don't have to do a circuit, and you have 8 hours of walking time you could take in a good bit more of the Eastern Reeks (which imho are far superior to Knockbrinnea) - if you are fit and want to bag a lot of peaks. Could think about maybe ascending via Beenkeragh and going to Carrauntoohil and on to Caher/Caher East, and then on the return leg at the col between Caher and Carrauntoohil make a beeline for the top of the Devils Ladder and going on to Cnoc na Toinne, Cnoc an Chuillinn, Maolan Bui and even Knocknapeasta, and retracing just ten minutes then and coming down the Bone. The climb from the Devil's Ladder back to Carrauntoohil would be a slog, whereas once you get on the Eastern Reeks you could bag a load in quick succession and its a wonderful walk. You would even get to see the start of the Big Gun Ridge, which if you are feeling very adventurous you can go for or save to take in on a longer day out.

A pleasant and easy stroll from the lay-by on the Allen-Miltown road as referenced by Dessie1. Frustratingly a spacious car parking area at this spot is padlocked, meaning visitors must park in a ...
