Great views with megalithic history.
Short Summary created by Peter Walker, simon3  16 Mar 2015
Seefin has many attractions for the walker, giving great views over west Wicklow, the Pollaphuca Reservoir and Kildare. It also has a magnificent megalithic tomb parts of which it is still possible to clamber into.
There's a number of ways of reaching the top. One place to start from is O 0636 1747 A. Walk from there to around O06291685 B and then head up the hill keeping outside the boundary fence of the Kilbride Firing Range. The advantage of this starting point is that should you be doing a circuit coming back via Seahan, you are positioned fairly far north.
Alternatively you can start from various places such as O068 154 C (up a ride) or the car park at Kippure Bridge O079145 D. It will take about 30 mins to reach the top.
Incidentally this summit with its cairn is with its neighbour Seefingan very visible on the approaches to Dublin on the M7/ N7. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/241/comment/5001/
