Great views of Lough Derryvaragh and the midlands from to top of Knock Eyon
by ger_the_sea  24 Jul 2020
Fabulous views from the top of Knock Eyon. A short sharp little hill with incredible views for little effort. The whole of Westmeath, Offaly (could def see Edenderry), Wicklow mountains, and not sure how far in the other direction. Great place to see the distinctive Crag and Tails formation of Lough Derryvaragh, formed by tougher chert resisting the glacier that once occupied the Lough.

The instructions from Fergalh are still to the good. The new house is now built. There is just about space to park here. Please be sensitive to a number of the residents who have erected no parking signs. Plenty of livestock around the top of the lane but nothing on the hill. Took me 10 mins from car to the top so just a short hop if you're in the area. Well worth it for the views. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1273/comment/20826/

Bulls are the hazard here !
by Fergalh  1 Mar 2014
Take the (R394) Castlepollard road north of Mullingar ,after passing through Crookedwood you will come to junction for Collinstown shortly after this (the next left) you will come upon a garage on the right. Turn left until crossroads, than turn left again and park at new house being built (N4669264396 A). Proceed up track till you get to the top of the road there is a series of gates here. The gate you have to go through has beware bull sign ! Now the tricky bit the field has 5 or 6 black and white bulls, skirt around them to get to the trig pillar !

Always ask landowner permission to cross land, never ever damage fences and beware of livestock. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1273/comment/15808/
