simon3 on Glendoo Mountain, 2002
by simon3  26 Dec 2002
Ken Finlay's excellent Chapters of Dublin History says of the area round about "These points[Glendoo, Cruagh, Killakee] although marked as mountain summits on the Ordnance Survey maps, are of so indeterminate a character, and differ so little in altitude from their immediate surroundings as to be almost incapable of identification, except by careful observation with an aneroid and compass." Still, while lacking enormous intrinsic interest, Glendoo is near to Dublin, is part of various possible routes and has interesting views. The photo shows the well rounded nature of the summit area.

Picture: Sundew near the summit of Glendoo
Pleasant walk on a sunny day, great views.
by hibby  3 Jul 2010
Walked to the top (both tops) of Glendoo as part of a short circular walk (one of the geocaching "Walk in the Garden" series). Unusually, the ground was quite firm underfoot after a long dry spell, so it wasn't as mucky as we had been warned to expect. The views over Dublin, down the Glencree valley and across the Dublin and Wicklow mountains were beautiful on a sunny day. The hillside was festooned with bog cotton. I took a picture of some sundew growing on the bog near the summit.

Approaching from the Killakee Road (R115), there is a bullaun stone near the track at O1288 2040 A (http://www.megalithomania.com/show/site/469/Glassamucky+Mountain.htm). Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/303/comment/5917/

Navigation practice in total fog in a safe location
by nkenealy  13 Oct 2013
We parked the car in the middle of fog (couldn't see further than 10 yards) at O12819 20170 B (Point D) on the Military Road R115. There's a clear trail at first but it veered off to the left away from Glendoo summit so we had to be careful not to take that. The top is flat, featureless and boggy and we couldn't find the path to top because the visibility was so bad. It was just a quick walk on a Sunday morning but very good practice for getting used to navigating in total fog without any landmarks. Also the GPS battery went and I had forgotten spares. (Learned a lesson there) My map and compass got me safely back to the car but I would have had no idea which way to go without the compass - great practice for navigation - in a relatively safe location.

Scenic loop around Glencullen
by geohappy  24 Feb 2015
Saturday 31 May, 10.15am, as part of training for the HeadsUp 5 peaks challenge, decided to do Captain Vertigo's Track 2035 starting at Johnny Fox's pub. I can't match his poetic style but just a few comments. The road to Wicklow Way is pleasant and exchanged greetings with a few locals, marvelling at the gardens most people seem to manage these days. Plodded up the forestry road/Wicklow Way, overtaken by a pair of athletes. Struck out at the edge of the forestry and up to Prince William's Seat. Then across to Knocknagun and Glendoo, fantastic slightly hazy views of Dublin Bay and Wicklow. Underfoot a bit boggy but only minor jumps required. Crossed the bog from Glendoo, following the west bank of the river north to the forest by Cruagh and taking the boardwalk and then the forest road to Zipit - I didn't know about this set-up and stood for a while envying the young folk monkeying about. Then an attack up Tibradden where I stopped for a late lunch about 2pm. Continuing east to Fairy Castle/Two Rock, impressed by the work on these paths - I will be bringing the family to see the Dublin Mountain Way. Then down to the SE, took a turn east TOO SOON and reached a sign - bikes only! Hurried along to get back to a forest track, just missed getting run over by 2 bikes, then around the forest by the 'gallery tomb' and out onto the main road.(being a golfer, I did NOT cut across the golf course as the captain did). Arrived back at the pub for a lovely pint after a total time of 5h40 but measuring later it was 22.7km so the captain's shortcut takes off 800m... In summary, a great day out, especially because I am a debutant in the Dublin mountains despite arriving in the city in 1971. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/303/comment/16092/

sinbadw on Glendoo Mountain, 2004
by sinbadw  11 Oct 2004
We decided we had reached the summit purely based on a GPS reading, very hard to tell. But the views were well worth it, to the South East Knocknagun and Prince Williams Seat with the Sugarloaf peaking out from behind them. To the South West Ballymorefin hill, Corrig Mountain, Seahan and Seefingan. Kippure and the Tonduffs were shrouded in cloud. We ended up the wrong side of the fence (see picture submitted by simon3) when further on it became substantial, and had to go a fair bit out of our way before we could get over it without damaging the fence or ourselves!

An ideal route for those using the Dublin Mountaineer Bus service
by three5four0  31 Aug 2010
Climbed Glendoo Mountain by the paths starting from the car park in Cruagh forest. Continued over Knocknagaun and Prince Williams Seat to the Wicklow Way and back into Glencullen, to catch the Dublin Mountaineer Bus service. Surprisingly there was only one other passenger on the bus, a much under used service then. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/303/comment/6071/
