I did this last Monday on a crystal clear winters day. I followed the directions for the Cush-Galtybeg-Galtymore-Slievecushnabinnia horseshoe as given in Lonely Planet’s Walking in Ireland. I parked at the car park near the Clydagh River bridge at R875278 E. Here you find a notice describing the history and geography of the Galtees and a welcome, if you don’t be smiling, from local landowners and the Glen of Aherlow failte society. But do note that dogs are prohibited. Ignore the two forest paths that lead from the car park and walk up the tarmac road for a few hundred yards until you see concrete steps on your left. Cross these, then cross a stile, then follow a rough path and fence up the side of Cush, until you reach a fence barring your way. There is a stile about 20 yards to your right to cross this, leaving you on open ground all the way to the summit. The ground is pleasant enough underfoot, but it is quite steep. All the way up great views are afforded of the Glen of Aherlow to your back. The summit has no cairn or pillar but has a very sharp drop off its western side which would need to be watched in bad visibility. The summit has two distinct peaks, the northernmost being the highest. After this it was off to tackle Galtybeg. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/215/comment/2097/
