Simple ascent to distinctive hill
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy  25 Jul 2019
Start at O 22548 20346 A, a forest entrance, where there is parking for several cars. Follow the gently rising forest track east, which then curves around to the south, the rocky dome of the hill appearing on the right. The track splits just below the summit - take the right hand path, which then curves up and around the dome, becoming a very rocky, narrow track which will take you all the way to the top. The summit is completely clear of forestry and presents fine panoramic views. 15minutes from car to top. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1180/comment/15424/

Picture: Ballycorus Chimney Flue
Look out for the mines!
by eamonoc  21 Mar 2014
Climbed Carrickgollogan today started at O 22548 20346 A, followed directions from previous comments, it took 11mins from the car park to the summit. The views were fantastic today, noticed chimney like structure poking its head above trees to the south from summit. Decided to investigate, the structure is a Leadmine Chimney Flue. The mines were called Ballycorus Lead Mines which opened in 1807, closed in 1913. This Chimney flue is the only example of such a one to have been built in Ireland. So if you have the inclination to climb Carrickgollogan, it is well worth paying a visit to this interesting site. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1180/comment/15935/

Nice little hill
by muschi  20 Jan 2014
Visited this summit in early Dec 2013, looking for foliage to make an advent wreath, there are many mature Noble Fir trees throughout the plantation.
There is a car park on Murphy's Lane at O 22548 20346 A. From there walk East along a good track through the wood to the summit, which is cone shaped, clear of trees and offers good views of the surrounding area. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1180/comment/15797/

Satisfying little hill
by Onzy  8 Feb 2014
It's a surprisingly enjoyable short walk to Carrickgollogan from the carpark on Murphy's Lane. The summit is a prominent hump in view ahead of you for most of the walk. The climb onto the summit could, at a stretch, be called a scramble. A worthwhile addition to the lists. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1180/comment/15837/

Great views from the obvious summit!
by simoburn  23 Mar 2014
So I was just up this hill this afternoon for my second time. Lovely easy walk, did it from my front door :) The summit is very obvious with lovely views. I have uploaded a GPS route also. While up here it is well worth the trip over to the chimney flue also! Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1180/comment/15941/

Delightful Walk
by Pepe  16 Nov 2015
A delightful little walk, just the thing to keep the cold winter blues away. Great views up top.
To go directly to the hill from the Murphy's Lane carpark at A, go through the barrier up behind the mapboard and turn right. Ten minutes from there to the summit. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1180/comment/18388/
