This hill is a very popular place to go for a walk on the weekends, thanks to its relative ease of ascent, its proximity to population centres, the interesting historical features at the summit, and the wonderful views. There is a large car park, which is busy and much in demand on fine weekend days.

It seems fairly common to ascend by the winding forest paths and then take the steep straight-line route back down to the car park. That path is quite deeply eroded in places.

South Dublin County Council has plans for extensive development to include an interpretative centre, a "sky bridge" treetop walk, and additional car parking, which will no doubt change the character of the place. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1507/comment/24226/
