Low cliffy mountain in the middle of the Wicklow massif.
Short Summary created by simon3  23 Sep 2013
Carrigshouk is probably seldom a target in itself but lends itself to being part of walks to the wilder parts of Wicklow west of the Military Road. Unusually it is steeper to the South East rather than North or North East.
A obvious place to start from is around O1027 0525 starA or other places nearby. It is possible to ascend by heading more or less directly east from there - 60-70 minutes round trip.. Also approximately SE of the top there is a rough track that heads west and curves around the SW side of the summit to arrive at the col between the top and Mullaghcleevaun East Top. Linkback:
Too long left out!

Just happened upon this "new" summit on Mountainviews, this evening and feel I have to give it a short comment, Always good to be first to do so!
For as long as this summit has been on the "excluded" list it has been unfortunate as it has been crossed by many I'm certain, mainly as the entry or exit to Mullaghcleevaun (via East Top).
It has lovely views as you come down SE towards the R115, looking over Luggala, Knocknacloghoge and Kanturk/Scarr as they frame the beautiful jewel that is Lough Dan.
The forestry to the west and south of the hill has a (very rough) track running along the boundary fenceline which despite it's dreadful underfoot condition is a good way of making progress past the summit, which one can bag in passing.
Anyway, thanks to Simon et al for the return from exile of this summit. Linkback:

Yay only 1 more summit to go :)
by LizzieMurray  8 Oct 2012
After years driving by this lovely looking mountain finally had the guts to conquer it yesterday 6th October 2012. It is even steeper than it looks what with me being a novice still. We made our way up the gully towards the summit cairn. Was quite taxing but well worth it on the day we had. The weather was fabulous and the views were amazing. A fabulous warm up to get on and do Mullaghcleevaun East Top and stop for a spot of lunch and a well deserved cuppa. Wrap up though, tis rather chilly up there :) Linkback:

Perfect Strating point
by Sarkuns  23 Apr 2014
Carrigshouk on 22.04.2014 as a starting point for around 7-8h walking rout.

Taking a straight forward approach it took me approximately 30 min to get to the summit from O1027 0525 starA . Pretty steep and rocky slope, with some interesting stone structures. And excellent views from the top. Linkback:

Carrigshouk is a ground down ridge end with just enough prominence to be considered an Arderin. Linkback:
