Direct approach from the north.
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy  16 Aug 2022
This is usually done in conjunction with Dooish itself, although it may be completed individually. There are a number of places to park on the R251 directly to the north of the top. Proceed south for about 500m across the boggy ground (somewhat marshy even in summer) before the terrain begins to rise sharply. As you continue south some zig-zagging may be required to ascend parts of the hill. The slope begins to ease at about 470m. When you reach B97198 20784 starA, turn SW for the last gentle hop to the summit, which is marked by a cairn. Allow 2 hours up & down. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1460/comment/18088/
