Flattish and boggy rise on scarp from Knocknamanagh to Gullaba Hill.
Short Summary created by simon3, jackill  21 Oct 2013
Park on the sharp bend at W02056 66620 A which has room only for 3 or 4 cars on the roadside. Walk uphill on the nearby unsurfaced road and follow the boggy track to the right. The track is shortly replaced by various tractor created ruts and the remains of a green road - these are constant companions all the way over the wet ground to the summit of Knocknamanagh NE Top. The flat, boggy top has a number of fences coming together. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/237/comment/4997/

Unremarkable top
by Colin Murphy  10 May 2010
Barely discernible as a top in itself, Knocknamagh NE is essentially a broad field, the 'summit' marked by the post in the picture and is redeemed only by the fine views it offers. Unless its on your way to somewhere else, don't expend any valuable energy trying to get here! Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/237/comment/4704/

Slaheny River views.
by simon3  21 Oct 2013
Between Knocknamanagh NE (KNE) and Gullaba there is distance of around 1050m with a col on the scarp. By walking along the east edge of this, good views to the Carran group and the Slaheny Valley open up.
The day we did it, the weather was overcast nevertheless this panorama shows the extent of the view. To the left of the picture is Gullaba Hill, to the right a ridge leading off KNE. Note the knobbly mid ground. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/237/comment/15232/

jackill on Knocknamanagh NE Top, 2006
by jackill  27 Nov 2006
I took in Knocknamanagh NE Top on a short 7km circuit with its neighbour Gullaba Hill. With gales and heavy rain forecast for the afternoon,time was against me. There was low cloud hanging heavy on the hills at about the 600 meter mark which didn't make for very good photography. The summit is marked by a fence that heads off in three directions and someone has seen fit to paint a few posts in bright red. The photo was taken from near the summit looking down to Coomyfaun Lake. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/237/comment/2562/

Fabulous views
by muddyboots  17 Dec 2014
Climbed Knocknamanagh NE Top and Gullaba Hill in early November on a clear bright day. As mentioned previously park at bend (2 car space) at W021666 B on road from Kilgarvan to Bantry. There is a gate and good gravel road up the side of Knocknamanagh NE Top up to 260m. The tractor tracks mentioned are faint and lead west north west. These can be partially followed up the mountain but they go through newly planted forest and this will be a challenge in the future. It does appear that they loop around this forest area but descend first into the valley. A fence needs to be crossed (no Barbed Wire) and then follow another one up to summit. The summit of Knocknamanagh NE Top is ill defined - you may end up crossing the fence to find a suitable spot- the fence corner at the top is close to OS map height. Continue down the ridge following the fence line to Gullaba Hill (care if mist as steep drop off on right hand side). You can either continue to Bird Hill or as I did descend aiming for farm track at W014678 C. This continues as a farm track down to the minor grey road before completing the loop with a 1.5km road walk. There are a number of gates to climb over/open and you do walk literally through the yard of a farmhouse but I wasn't approached or stopped. I did not see anyone though (some dogs but enclosed). 2.5hrs for just under 7km. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/237/comment/17762/

A Platform Worth Reaching
by CaptainVertigo  18 Sep 2015
While Knocknamanagh NE Top is really no more than the middle of three grassy bumps, it provides a superb platform from which to view the surrounding countryside. The panorama to its east, across the Slaheny River valley, is wonderfully compelling. The relative ease of the passage from Knocknamanagh to Gullaba allows the eye to rest on these treats. I particularly loved the contrast between "mountain brown" and the rich greens of the cultivated areas. The impression of wilderness is strong, and even the windmills cannot disturb that sense of a landscape at peace. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/237/comment/18318/
