Picture: Summit Area.
 
Galway Island
by sandman  19 Jun 2017
Although the photo of the summit area is taken facing out to sea this high point is located close to a modern stone built house in fact as i drove towards the high point i wondered if actually the house was built on it . Parking at L8360124327 A walk back towards a white bungalow opposite the brown stone built house and at the side of same the fence is basically non existing ,go up past the house crossing over a low wall to the summit area which is located on private property . Presently there is the remains of an old house on this property so expect a revamp going forward. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/2242/comment/19566/
