Short Summary created by liz50,  22 Mar 2017
Located behind Kylemore Abbey, it has been reported that access from the grounds is no longer allowed. It is possible to park in a small lay-by at L77637 58711 A and walk approx 30m along the road to a 'gate' with access to a grassy field and the saddle below Doughruagh. A steep rocky ascent to the summit. An alternative start point to the West at L72134 59157 B with roadside parking. Ascend ridge to Currywongaun and small drop across wet bog before a steep rocky ascent to the summit. The top is rocky and dotted with lakes and pools and fine views over Connemara. Usually included with a walk to Doughruagh main top as it is in close proximity across a lake. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1465/comment/18093/
