New Comment: My nearest MV hill
by TommyV  Fri 14 Dec
This hill is only a few kilometers over the road from my home house. However without Mountain Views website you would scarcely know it's a hill as it is situated in an area of high ground anyway so it does not feel like it is a hill of any real elevation. eamonoc's directions are bang on. The forest does limit the view to one side of the hill, but the mast can be seen all over west Clare. I can only imagine what the views are like from up there.

Followed good forest track for about 800mts took right fork uphill to edge of forest, followed forest edge to the right for about 100mts crossed into rough field to the left, mast appeared out of the mist. High point just above mast in field beside forest edge. Weather was dreadful no views to comment on.

Friendly Farmer.
by sandman  18 Aug 2014
The entrance for the access road to the mast is located at R2746782104 C and although the gravel road passes alongside farm buildings the farmer has no objections for you to drive to the mast as long as you close the one gate after you. As mentioned in the previous comment the summit is located on high ground in an adjacent field to the right of the mast as you approach.R2729382884 D.
