New Comment: Great views over Bantry
by MichaelG55  16 Sep 2020
As stated an easy climb to the trig point following part of the Sheep's Head Way. Great views over Bantry and surrounding countryside. Up and down easily in an hour. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1166/comment/20889/

An Easy Stroll
by Pepe  22 Jul 2016
Two and a half hours will take you all the way from the centre of Bantry to the trig and back down town again. Finding your way up from the streets to the Knocknaveagh carpark can be tricky - the signposting is erratic. No problems from the carpark to the trig. It's well waymarked.
