The invisible mountain
I've just noticed that the Dublin/Wicklow list of mountains has been reduced from 55 to47, well I've waited a long time for those imposters like Clohernagh, table, stoney top etc. to be taken off the list so well done to whoever is responsible for that. The only problem is that it's still wrong. There's a mountain that I have passed many many times and have climbed quite often, but it appears to be invisible to the list makers. It is 571 metres high and has a minimum drop of around 30 metres and therefore more than qualifies to be on the list, so why it has never been included even on the local 100 list is a mystery to me. Now it's fair to say that I'm not the brightest so maybe it's just a figment of my imagination. It's called Carrigshouk.

Slieve Foye: Not bad.
shanks 3 hours ago.
Excellent if introduceing new walkers reasonably well signed but was a little overgrown in spots and path really close to wire fencing at others. Apart from that ☺

Knockardakin: Bag it as part of the cliff walk
TommyV 3 days ago.
I technically haven't bagged the summit of this hill as it wasn't listed on MV when I did the Ciiffs of Moher walk, but it would be a very small detour to bag it. I was no more than 50 meters from...

Clifden Hill: Didn't bag it

I drove as far as the point mentioned by Jamessheerin. Nice views over Lough Inchiquin, the drive trhough the trees only add about ten mentres of elevation and lots of briars so I got back in my c...

Cloontohil: My nearest MV hill
TommyV 3 days ago.
This hill is only a few kilometers over the road from my home house. However without Mountain Views website you would scarcely know it's a hill as it is situated in an area of high ground anyway s...

Ben Dash: One of my earlier attempts
TommyV 3 days ago.
Ben Dash was one of my earlier attempts at hill bagging, back in the days when I had no gps and didn't believe I needed a map. I went through some bog that people had bagged turf on before I found...

The Annapurna Circuit

My daughter, Ciara, has just completed an 11-day trek around the Annapurna Circuit in the Himalayas. She's not a particularly experienced walker, so completing it was quite the achievement. Here's...

More of a drive than a hike. Well worth it for the views.

Cooneen Hill: Very average
TommyV 3 weeks ago.
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...
