Bearnán Éile (Devilsbit Mountain) is at the other end of it. The Hill of Croghan is the remains of an old volcano. A bog body, known as 'Old Croaghan Man', was found in the vicinity in 2003.   Croghan Hill is the 1311th highest place in Ireland.

Isolated Gem
by eamonoc  9 Jul 2013
Climbed Croghan Hill today in beatiful weather, once again thanks to Mountainviews and previous posters for the info on this Gem of a hill, had no difficulty finding the hill or the route up. Despite its modest height the views from the top were outstanding in all directions. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1017/comment/15034/
