New Comment: One of the best short hikes in Ireland.
by TommyV  12 Jun 2019
The route described by others is still the same and it's now way marked. Just to mention that there is now a car park which is a discovery point along the Wild Atlantic Way which is the start point and there is a two euro charge (Sorry Peter Walker) to park here but it is money well spent.
