Easy climb up boreen and rough track
Short Summary created by Geo  11 Jun 2016
Park at Q7386731394 A at a junction where there is a sign for Dahillan's Well. The North Kerry Way exits a boreen here and you go South on this boreen for about 150m to a junction where the NKW (White loop) turns right and follow this. The track is sound underfoot almost the whole way to the summit at Q7221330455 B. There are a few wettish spots but boots will be quite adequate.
The return trip from car to summit is approx 5.5km and 45min up and 35min return.
Views are extensive if cloud cover is not obstructive, going from Loop Head in North clockwise over the Shannon Estuary, Ballybunion, North Kerry, Tralee Bay, Slieve Mish to South, Then Brandon ridge and the Atlantic to the West.
Well worth a visit on it's own or as part of a North Kerry Way walk (esp. the Kerry Head sections) Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1030/comment/5789/
