There is an impressive megalithic cairn on Seefin. It is still possible to enter it, although the roof has collapsed at the centre.   Seefin is the 253rd highest place in Ireland. Seefin is the second most southerly summit in the Dublin area.

Echoes of a great and distant past...

The last mountain in the Kilbride circuit as we, my two fellow hikers and I, had started our hike with Seahan. This is a fine mountain. Its cairn is well worth visiting. We followed the well worn boggy path from Seefingan. The circuit is a kind of 'Valley of the Kings' as there are so many ancient cairns. The cairn on Seefin is partly in ruins as described by fellow contributors. The liffey vale and blessington lake nearby so rich and fertile watched over sentry like by the cairns that crown the mountains there. The cairn broke the chilly breeze that was blowing in from the South East as we munched our lunch. The route down was marked by large rocks similar to the large rocks that were used to construct the Cairn. Care is needed on the decent as it is a steep gradient and sticks help. Back to the road and then the car. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/241/comment/6294/
