For a Clear Day.
by sandman  29 Mar 2016
You will not be disappointed if you save this short walk for a clear and sunny day with its fine views of Galway Bay and across to the high mountains of Connemara. In the future your views to the east will have a large wind farm to contend with as construction takes place adjacent to Knocknalee Hill. As mentioned in the previous comment parking for one car at point A. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1173/comment/18478/
