Land Ho!
Short Summary created by jackill  3 Jul 2010
A 45 minute ferry trip from Baltimore will bring you to Clear Island. From the harbour take the first turn left uphill and follow the road to the cross at V97022 22299 A, turn right and go uphill to a gate at V96971 22029 B. Cross the stile and follow a rough track to the summit.
A non-functioning wind turbine sits a short distance from the summit.
Views over the whole island and across the sea to the mainland are magnificient. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1048/comment/5807/
