Simple walk, stunning walk
by Colin Murphy  7 Aug 2019
This hill is the highest point on the Loop Head peninsula and can be accessed via the Dunlicky Road about 4km south from Kilkee. Park at quarry entrance located at Q8532058397 A and proceed up the hill to the SE for about 600m to the trig pillar at the summit. A much more enjoyable way to bag the summit is to take the Kilkee Cliff walk, starting at the Diamond Rocks Cafe, past the statue of Richard Harris and continue along the track to the highest point of the cliff, where the track rejoins the road. The views of the coastline along the track are tremendous. A further 2km walk along the road will take you to the quarry entrance. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1361/comment/20598/

Confused.
by sandman  30 Jun 2014
Not often you locate a trig with the OS stamp as is on Moveen Hill . Unfortunately a quarry exists on this hill although it is not presently working which is a result of the economic downturn, instead of a rock deposit problem, but i am totally confused how such a quarry was given planning in the first place especially in an area of such natural beauty. The quarry entrance is located Q8532058397 A which allows parking adjacent it is a short walk to summit Q8571857488 B. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1361/comment/17521/

Highest on the Loop
by TommyV  23 Mar 2019
As Moveen Hill is the highest point on the Loop Head peninsula, the views on offer are great for such little effort. As mentioned by sandman, through the quarry and then out onto the open hill is the easiest way to access it. I did notice alot of sections of the quarry fenced off with signs warning of Asbestos!!
