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, A (R308 959) , from the start point.
Be sure to book in advance however.

If you park at B (R33388 97783) (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/
