Picture: What passes for a high point.
On approach is from the SE. There is parking for several cars at CrgAlisy (W243 815) A, the entrance to a wind farm track. Follow the track up to A (W232 823) B and then climb over the bank of earth on the left resulting from the track's construction. Head directly west for about 300m, aiming for a gap in the forestry tucked into a corner. The terrain is rough clumps of long grass and heather and quite uneven, although there are a couple of sheep trails if you can find them. Cut through the woods for about 200m emerging into more open ground and turn NW for another few hundred metres, up gently rising but very uneven ground. The summit area is unmarked and quite bleak, especially in poor conditions.

The Far North East is not too far.
by chelman7 8 Oct 2020
There is a good forest track most of the way up, but you have to leave this for the last 500 M which is not too pleasant. Mullaghanish Far north east is much more easily reached from the same track. As the county border runs through the summit you have to be very careful not to cross from Cork into Kerry and thus break Covid level 3 restrictions ☺☺☺ Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/1407/comment/20916/

Tiptoe through the trees
by thomas_g 1 Sep 2021
Parked at CrgAlisy (W24339 81472) at entrance to Wind Farm complex, room for 4 cars.
See track 3033 for a route that uses several firebreaks to form a loop walk that visits this and the Far NE top, the paths through the trees are not obvious.
Most of this route is through knee to waist high grass and heather and is tough going, it is probably more straightforward to use the road as much as possible to get as close as possible to each peak before braving the "jungle".
This top is also quite accessible from Mullaghanish top itself. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/1407/comment/18201/
