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/
