New Comment: Ailwee & Moneen
by TommyV  25 Oct 2018
Leaving Ballyvaughan on the N67 towards Kinvarra, there is a right turn at M23589 08060 A that will bring you to a wood loop walk which will bring you to the car park for the Ailwee Caves at M22982 05170 B. At the top of the car park there is an obvious path through the bushes leading onto the open hill. It's a straight forward walk to the summit of the hill, although attention needs to be paid to where you walk as the surface is covered in heather grass and some real ankle breaker holes lie hidden. You will see a road running along the summit next to the cairn, it's possible to follow this North towards Moneen Mountain. At the col leave the road at M25814 06534 C and follow the stone wall to the summit. From here we descended to a farm near a graveyard at M25401 08350 D and had a kilometere to walk on a busy N67 on a June Bank Holiday weekend. A better option might be to descend to the Green Acres holiday cottages at M24985 07601 E and follow this road back to Ballyvaughan. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1134/comment/20088/
