You'll be wanting tea with that!

As exasie commented, Father Ted's House is visible from the top of this hill and well worth a visit before or after your climb. It's only a short drive away, R308 959 starA, from the start point.
Be sure to book in advance however.

If you park at R3338897783 starB (room for one vehicle), you can access the hill thru the farm gate a few metres from you allowing you quick ascent to the summit. No access issues as the hill is located in The Burren National Park. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1286/comment/17604/

Lovely walk in the heart of the Burren
by Aongus  5 Aug 2020
I did the circuit Mullaghmore, Slieve Roe and Knockanes on Bank Holiday Monday. Lovely circuit in an amazing landscape with great views. I followed the Blue route from Loch an Gealláin to summit of Mullaghmore. While the Blue route drops left of Mullaghmore and returns to the start I continued on the short trip to Slieve Roe. A bigger drop to the next col followed by a good pull brought me to Knockanes. I went cross country and picked up the Blue route again under Mullaghmore.

This walk is mainly on exposed limestone, some very short and easy scrambles are required to overcome a few steps so care is needed!

A 3 hour walk to savour. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1286/comment/20839/

Remarkable scenery
by Damian120  12 Jun 2021
A good hike over the traditional Burren karst limestone. A few minor scrambles if approaching from the left. The views are astounding and offer up a picture-postcard setting that encompasses, Mullaghmore, Sliabh Rua and even Father Ted's house. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1286/comment/23173/

Easy peasy, Ted.....
by exaisle  15 Jul 2014
I climbed this and the nearby Mullaghmore recently.

Not much of a challenge, but the terrain and views of the Burren are fantastic.

The only other notable thing about Knockanes is that you can see Father Ted's house..... Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1286/comment/17552/
