It featured very largely in the Irish psyche and culture back in the nineties on account of the controversy surrounding a proposed interpretive centre. During & after this long debate, Mullaghmore became central in our attitude to the environment, specifically the preservation of wilderness, access   Mullagh More is the 1421th highest place in Ireland. Mullagh More is the second most easterly summit in the West Clare area.

Picture: Mullaghmore
A spectacular landscape
by Damian120  18 Apr 2017
The trails are well marked out, I ended up doing the Blue Trail on a fine Easter Monday. This landscape seems to defy nature and hiking the Blue Trail this phenomenon is experienced every step of the way. It's described as very difficult on the official Burren National Park website, not too sure about that. I found it somewhat easier but either way it's a fantastic trail Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1390/comment/18889/

Picture: The alien looking Mullaghmore
 
Unnatural
by TommyV  14 Dec 2018
There is parking at an intersection on the Green road at R30403 94495 A. Follow the road east along the Burren way for about 1 kilometer. After the lake on the left, there is a gap in the wall at R31471 94362 B which is an indicator to hit out onto the open Burren towards the alien looking Mullaghmore. The route to the top is way marked and once on top it's easy to follow the ridge line north over to Slieve Roe and then north east over to Knockanes. Keep an eye out to the west to see the famous Father Teds house.

Once descending Knockanes the terrain is rough underfoot, keep to the right of the lake and you will join a small looped trail that leads back to the road near the intersection. Do keep an eye out for the megalithic tomb at R31840 95470 C if going this way. The route from Knockanes back to the road is quite tricky to manouvre through so it might be best to simply retrace your steps back to Slieve Roe and Mullaghmore Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1390/comment/20093/

Burren Butterflies
by paddyhillsbagger  5 Sep 2015
Managed to climb this top on a lovely sunny day in September. One of the many sights on this fabulous top were the butterflies. The most common on the day I went up was the Grayling which is mainly a Burren species. Most of them were sun lounging on the limestone rocks!
