Picture: The mountain from the SW.
 
Approach from SW.
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy  31 May 2022
One approach is from Gougane Barra, taking in Foilastookeen and Conigar itself. An alternative is to approach from the SW, parking at W04035 60935 starA, just north of a religious grotto. Walk up the road (north) about 400m and you will see a track up through farmland on the right at W04203 61392 starB. As this is a farm track, you may need to ask permission if there is anyone about. After about 200m go over a gate on the left onto a slightly rougher track , which continues for about 0.5km. Leave it anywhere suitable and continue NE up the spine of the mountain. The terrain is a little rough in places but generally passable - grass and some heather. Continue ascending NNE for about 2 km to reach the summit, which is just a slightly raised mound of earth and rock. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/1516/comment/20807/
