Picture: Bree may not fill you with Glee..
There is an approved access route starting at A (S93758 32578). Here there is a narrow trail with a signpost for Bree Hill showing walkers and cyclists. (Really only suitable for mountain biking). You can park just down the road at B (S93730 32513). Follow the narrow trail until you meet a forestry track. Turn right and then at C (S93676 32935) turn left into the trees and make your way through the trees uphill. This is an interesting experience and a bit odd due to some unusual tunnelling amongst the trees. Heading northwest you will emerge after a few hundred metres at the summit area and come out onto the bike track. The immediate summit area has been deforested and was (in August 2012) a quite overgrown flattish area. The bike/walker trail passes about 50 metres to the south of the summit highpoint which appears to be a small overgrown rocky outcrop in a general area of messy brambles and other greenery. This is a short walk taking about 40 minutes return. Limited views due to forestry and tangled growth around summit area.

A nice start to a walk
by wicklore 8 Apr 2014
The start point of this walk is a stroll along a quaint boreen past a ruin of an old cottage before emerging onto forestry tracks. A short walk that is more memorable for some unusual forestry and a tangled summit area than the views.

A Breeze
by eamonoc 11 Apr 2014
Climbed 4/4/204. Started at A (S93758 32578), on a very narrow boreen above the village of Bree. There is a brown wodden sign here with Bree Hill written on it, room to park here for one car. Headed up a good forest path and took the first right onto a larger forest track follwed this took another right at a fork in the path always heading uphill until just before a wooden bench is reached on the left. Headed left uphill into the forest following a faint track until a mountain bike course is reached higher up, went left here along this path and the summit area is the obvious high ground to the left of this path, there are a lot of fallen trees around the summit area. Total time car to car 37mins, distance approx 2.3km Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/1315/comment/15968/
