Knocknagantee can be reached as part of a circuit of Coomavoher or as described by csd. The end of a track is shown to the left of a white post in the foreground of the picture which was taken from SW of the summit. This track can be reached from roads to the east.

Knocknagantee sticks out like the prow of a ship heading south. An impressive southern marker of the flat boggy plateau to the north of it. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/147/comment/1940/
