Picture: Summit pillar
There is a very large car park (The Wild Atlantic Way Viewpoint) at A (WA (W002 469)) with parking for about 50 cars. Go to the eastern end of the car park and follow the way marked signposts up the gently climbing Sheep's Head Way, crossing several stiles before leaving the trail at B (W0097 4726) and continuing in a NE direction for about 600m over roughish ground, a mix of heather and grass, boggy in places. The high point is marked by a trig pillar.

Picture: Cotton and clouds...
Small but with plenty to interest.
by Colin Murphy 30 Aug 2021
Although small in size, this little hill presents tremendous views over Bantry Bay and the general West Cork Mountains area. It also has a partially collapsed neolithic burial chamber, and in summer, the area around the summit area is a sea of colour, a mix of purple heathers, yellow furze and a fine sprinkling of bog cotton.

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: mountainviews.ie/summit/1166/comment/20889/

Picture: Hail Trig !
Hail and wind did not spoil the view
by Fergalh 15 Oct 2020
The rest of my bagging day in the Sheep's Head peninsula (six peaks) were sunshine or cloud. This was done in a hailstorm in March. Thankfully when that stopped there was great views over Bantry. Park at car Park over Bantry A (W002 469) and follow the Sheeps head way and veer off near the summit. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/1166/comment/20921/

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.
