Panoramic views.

Followed Fergalh's excellent directions up to the top. Overgrown path may need trimming to get through in growing season. Took my 5yr old granddaughter along for the adventure but she got a little scared with the high winds at the top. Smiles afterwards however. Fine views all round.

Behind quarry
by Fergalh  24 Mar 2014
At Moate take road to the pretty village of Rosemount. Drive through village and turn left around west side of mountain. At quarry there is a sign for site of old church (N2401043352 A) proceed up this overgrown path to the top cross through gap into field turn right and proceed to top than cross through gap in fence to field the promentary with trig pillar is clearly visible.

Always ask landowner permission to cross land, never ever damage fences and beware of livestock. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1293/comment/15809/

Hunting and shooting forbidden
by ceadeile  17 Jan 2018
The path described by FergalH is now, January 2018, very overgrown. There are many thorn bushes in particular which make it a somewhat dangerous for your eyes. A simpler approach is to park at the disused quarry gate at N24035 43266 B and walk 100m NW along the road to N23968 43330 C where a double locked gate has a sign saying that hunting and shooting are forbidden. So, secure in the knowledge that you are unlikely to be hunted or shot, the well maintained field beyond the gate makes for pleasant underfoot conditions as you ascend to the top of the hill. If you keep close to the perimeter fence of the quarry and then follow the line of the stone wall uphill above the quarry you will come to another gate built into the stone wall. There are two strands of barbed wire to be negotiated then to access the field where the hilltop is located. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1293/comment/19843/
