A Coastal view worth visiting for.
Short Summary created by jackill  21 Aug 2014
Park at Q38538 10303 A, end of a cul de sac, with room to park 2 cars without obstructing access to nearby houses. Go west intially, then north, then north-east. In places the going is over rough dwarf furze, so long trousers are recommended.
There are fine views to SW of the Three Sisters, nearby Ballydavid head and to the north the end of the Brandon ridge.
It is possible to walk SW towards Ballydavid along one of the most spectacular cliff edges in Ireland. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1231/comment/15475/
