Fantastic Limerick Viewpoint
by eamonoc  11 Oct 2014
Climbed on 10/10/2014, started at R 66149 48290 A room to park here beside farm buildings for one car. Straight ahead there is a well made track , take it for about 50mts where it veers left there is a gate here hop over it and proceed uphill, cross second gate still following well made farm track. This leads eventually to a small wodded area cross another gate follow track uphill through wood and when emerging from wood summit cross and trig is visible up to the right, just follow track to top. Fantastic views in all directions from here, a must for the views alone. Distance from car to car approx 1.7km and time taken 30mins. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1289/comment/17721/
