I approached this mountain and Knockbrack beside from a small road on the Kenmare end of Kilgarvan. This road ends at a forestry entrance and nearby there are several large notices saying that trespassers will be prosecuted. I can't imagine that there is much of a problem as this is the unfashionable end of the Kerry mountains. You have to leave the main roads to even see them. The climb is straightforward and the hills are very quiet but popular with red deer. I saw a few myself. I made my climb after 3 weeks of dry weather and was impressed to find plenty of squelchy ground left. The normal conditions were also indicated by very deep valleys carved by some of the streams. The tops offer a good view of the Kenmare-Killarney district.
It looks like walking on to Mangerton itself would be a simple enough matter from here. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/194/comment/974/
