Easiest bag in Ireland?
by Colin Murphy  3 Feb 2022
At just 4m, this island is probably the easiest 'bag' on the entire island of Ireland. Finding the 'high' point is no easy task, but luckily at least it doesn't appear to be on the golf course. As you approach the island across the Causeway Road, you eventually come to a roundabout, where you'll see a few dunes covered in long beach grass. The highpoint, according to my GPS was on one of these just to the right (SW) of the roundabout. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/2328/comment/23403/

Can't be that easy!
by pdtempan  4 Feb 2022
In reply to Colin Murphy, I'm embarrassed to say that we visited Bull Island this summer without the thought of bagging the peak even occurring to me. Nor did we accidentally include it, as we only walked the north (inner) shore for about 600m. Did make a nice dog-walk, though, with interesting bird-life, including herons and egrets (so no regrets!). Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/2328/comment/23404/

Bull Island 8 circuit
by brenno  9 Feb 2022
A group of us did a figure of 8 circuit of Bull Island the Sunday before we all locked down in March 2020, also didn't occur to look for a high point. You can do a very nice c. 10k figure of 8 circuit of the island, starting at the causeway, following the outer beach towards Sutton until you're forced into the dunes, follow a trail back along the inner lagoon, skirting St Annes's golf club back past the causeway until you meet the Bull Wall. You can include the Bull Wall as part of this terribly arduous "trek" or else follow the outer beach back to where it meets the causeway roundabout. About 2.5 hours. One warning, if it's a nice weekend get there early as parking can be a nightmare. Also if it's windy be prepared for a lot of windblown sand when you're on the outer beach and watch for golf balls when going by St Anne's Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/2328/comment/23405/
