Picture: Ballyguile Hill from coastal walk to the north.
Sweeping views, rubbish start.
Short Summary created by simon3  14 Mar 2017
Although small Ballyguile hill has great views in all directions including two of the lighthouses of Wicklow Head, the gracious sweep of the coast north of it towards Newcastle and many of the central southern hills of Wicklow.
One place to start is at around T3129 9309 A. As of 2017 there was considerable rubbish lying around so watch out for glass. Head south across rough ground to find a track leading SW. Find a way from the track to the summit. Linkback: Picture about mountain Ballyguile Hill in area Dublin/Wicklow, Ireland

Ballyguile Dump!
by eamonoc  16 Apr 2014
Started at T30572 92733 B. Just about enough room to park one car without blocking track. Headed steeply uphill on a good track to its high point ant then uphill to the left across green field and then followed mast access track to top. Despite the fine views over Wicklow and St Georges channel the amount of trash dumped up near the masts was unbelievable. Linkback:

Ballyguile Hill can also be seen well from the south. Here's a view taken from near Brides Hill (a coastal hill near Wicklow Head) Linkback:

Wonderful views of wickla
by Fergalh  1 Mar 2014
I parked at the end of a row of duplex buildings (T31104 92930 D) where there is a hole in the fence.Drop under and than head up hill to the top cross fence again and road just across field at highest telecommunications mast is the top. Wonderful views of Wicklow town.

Always ask landowner permission to cross land, never ever damage fences and beware of livestock. Linkback:

Beguiling views from a banal summit.
by Colin Murphy  2 Jul 2019
Followed the access road for the com mast (which presented no access probs) then cut off to the left after about 100m, ascending a grassy/thistly field to the high point. Great views to the north and of Wicklow Head lighthouse to the east. Linkback:
