Park on the sharp bend at CorgTira (W02056 66620) 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, from there turn right and drop down to a col before the ascent to the small summit cairn of Gullaba next to a wire fence

jackill on Gullaba Hill
by jackill 1 May 2009
After having the heart put crossways in me by the lifesize cardboard cut-out of Kilgarvans most famous son (after the tailor Quill) , Jackie Healy-Rae I headed up the road past the motor museum and on through the 13' high tunnel. I parked on the sharp bend at CorgTira (W02056 66620) and walked around the bend and up a thoughtfully provided track towards the mountains. The track was soon replaced by various tractor created ruts- these were a constant companion all the way over the wet ground to the summit of Knocknamanagh NE Top. From there I crossed the broad shallow col to Gullaba. Through the breaks in the cloud were views down to Kilgarvan and the inlet of Kenmare and down to the lower summit of Bird Hill. Bird Hill gives its name to a rock formation of grey-green sandstone and purple siltstone laminated beds. Lamination is quite rare in siltstones. Below in Kilgarvan the bed rock is Old Red Sandstone at over 6000 meters thickness. This rock was once at the botton of the ocean in the Munster Basin but curiously it is non-marine in origin which suggests a massive subsidence in the area. Coming down from Gulluba Hill I passed numerous flat , scored rocks echoing the terrible energy of the retreating glaciers during the last ice age. I crossed the Gortacreenteen stream to the left bank to descend and met a good track coming down to the main road. Please note this track looks as though it may be from a nearby farmhouse. I rejoined the road at A (W017 676) and walked along the road to the start. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/265/comment/2561/

a beautiful little mountain route with great views
by Grumbler 9 Aug 2019
I followed Jackill advice and parked the car at CorgTira (W02056 66620) at the sharp bend after the tunnel , walking around the bend to double gates on the right hand side follow a good but steep track over the metal bridge and through the next 2 fields to the forest corner on your right. (not on OS map) just inside the forest fence there is a track that will take you up to around the 300mtr contour and runs into another track that runs north east downhill to a farm on the road before the tunnel. from here follow the fence up to spot height 625 turning right along the coll to Gullapa hill. I had thought about going on to Birdhill as there is a track below the coll between Gullapa and the Bird that will take you back to the road before the tunnel but was not sure about access permission as it is a working farm. I retraced my steps and was back at the car in four and a half hours including breaks. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/265/comment/20609/
