Accessed by the Darbys bed loop walk
Summary created by jackill
Follow the R663 out of Galbally, heading west towards Ballylanders. Turn right up a byroad at A (R77711 27628) and continue for a short distance to Darby's Bed (R78086 27761) where there is a small car park, room for 5 cars. Follow the track uphill into the forest on the Darbys bed loop walk. At the first crossroads in the forest head north uphill on a smaller track turning right at B (R77977 28327) to reach the summit.
Duntryleague Hill is essentially a loop walk incorporating the Darby’s Bed loop near the village of Galbally, Co. Limerick. To access same take the Tipperary road leaving the impressive square in Galbally, a well kept village and always does well in the tidy towns competition. Leaving the village the road squeezes between the flank of Duntryleague on the left with spot height 194 on the right. At approx C (R796 284) the trail leaves the road left and takes a steep incline at the beginning. No place to park here but there are spaces some 200 metres approx back towards the village so care is required on the brief road section as it’s fairly busy.
The walk itself is pretty straightforward, just continue on the forest roadway which continues to incline upwards. There are nice views to be seen to the right as one progresses over the Golden Vale and then Slievereagh. Mostly forest to the left with little views. At one point the track gives you the choice of either going left of straight on, whichever way you go you’ll end up coming back the opposite way. Depending on which way you pick [ I prefer straight ahead ] , you will see a path branching either left/right depending on your direction. Short walk up to the summit from here.
There is a fine passage tomb to be seen and an unusual stone pillar [see pic]. Return back by the same route. A pleasant place for a nice family walk, not too taxing and if you're planning a trip to the Galtees you're not too far away from the Clydagh bridge car park so one might squeeze it in.

Given the revised listings I appear to be the first to claim ascent here. Climbed here about a year and a half ago. Must look up my pictures and upload one soon. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/1176/comment/15768/

Very straight forward out and back route to the Dolmen near the top of this forestry planted hill. I followed jackill's route from the small car-park on the South side of the hill. However if you would like to have a longer walk to stretch the legs then following the purple arrows along the Darby's Bed loop as mentioned by hivisibility is another option.
