The Uí Chinnsealaigh were the dominant Gaelic family in this area and the mountain gets the fuller version of its name from them. This helps to distinguish it from Croaghanmoira, which is a little further north.   Croghan Kinsella is the 272nd highest place in Ireland.

Agree with Etrino.
We had some (enjoyable in their solution) problems finding a route. The forest as marked on the map (Sheet 56) is not as extensive as it is in reality. The Trailmasters software which we used (after and somewhat before) would have given us aerial views which showed how far and wide the forest was and where the tracks went. Nice experience though. And the snow slopes were great. Although I expect that the whole mountain is now under about 5 feet of white powdery snow. Wonder if anyone has managed to access this part of Wiclow?

To the Reeks this weekend, Superterence. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/261/comment/4339/

Have been on Croghan many times. Have seen Rosslare on a clear day. the windmills in Arklow bay are an interesting sight. have seen some people looking for gold in the river with mixed success. locals wary of the hill as stories abound of locals getting lost in sudden mists.

Hello there Mountainviewers, this is my first entry.
A question on Croghan Kinsella. Has anybody tackled the obvious line to the summit, ie starting from the "Wickow Gap" below Annagh Hill and walking to CK and then onto Ballycoog further north? A classic linear walk, hoping to walk this late Feb. Wold appreciate any comments. T Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/261/comment/3562/

Family walk
by Natasha  28 Jul 2012
Lovely up Croghan Kinsella this morning, we took the route from Raheenleagh Woods A it's easily found if you start at Aughrim village and go out over bridge on Carlow Rd take 1st left, follow road to Toberpatrick sign left, left past Gap Pub and left at Clonroe passing Annagh Hill and sharp left down to the woods are sign posted, best follow map on these country roads. Th Raheeenleagh Woods trail has car parking with only one car when we set off at 9.45 but a busy spot for cars on our way back! Perfect walk for kids, we really enjoyed it (9months, 6 & 8) but don't over estimate anyone's ability my kids live in Wicklow they're used to good walks! We're pretty prepared with a sturdy back carrier for baby which carrys the Woolley beanies, raincoats, we needed on top, snacks, water and treats that keep everyone happy and a compass & binoculars for added entertainment, not to forget teathing rings. Be adventurous make your own play ground in the trees when the showers come, no point all getting wet! The Aughrim market was a lovely stop on the way home it's open Saturday mornings til 2pm!
