Picture: The dome of Carrickgollogan
Start at CGologan (O22548 20346), 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.

New A hill close to my heart
by hibby Sun 18 Feb
I grew up near Carrickgollogan, but it was better known as Kattie Gallagher, or just "the hill". The view from our kitchen window was dominated by the N-S ridge of the hill, with the handsome bald dome of the summit at one end and the lead mines chimney at the other. Over the course of the year the sun set at different points along the ridge.

It is deservedly a very popular place to walk, with wonderful views to the coast and nearby hills. There's a good network of forest roads and tracks, mainly firm underfoot. There is a short section near the chimney that is usually muddy.

Today we went up with our recently adopted dog, Benji. We parked in the car park on Murphy's Lane and walked directly to the summit, which took about 15 minutes. The ascent of the quartzite summit dome is steep enough to create a sense of achievement while still being manageable for children and small dogs!

From the summit, we visited the chimney and then looped back to the car, for a total of 3 km. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/1180/comment/24138/

Picture: Ballycorus Chimney Flue
Look out for the mines!
by eamonoc 21 Mar 2014
Climbed Carrickgollogan today started at CGologan (O22548 20346), 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: 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 CGologan (O22548 20346). 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: 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: 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: mountainviews.ie/summit/1180/comment/15941/
