When approached from Benbulbin Slievemore is a flat, boring bog with an indistinct summit that isn't even marked by a cairn. It is much better appreciated from the ridge north to Benwiskin as my photo shows. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/282/comment/4091/

Climbed up onto the plateau via the path up the valley on the east side of Kings Mountain. Once you get to the top of this path, the hike across to Slievemore is actually rather boring. But there are some nice cliffs to the north of the mountain and the view of the Gleniff horseshoe is good. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/282/comment/1036/

Drive up Truskmore (easy). Follow the ridge eastwards to King's Mountain and Ben Bulbin. Great views over Sligo and Sligo Bay from top of cliffs Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/282/comment/196/
