One stop on an excellent circular walk
Short Summary created by jackill,  25 Jan 2015
This mountain can be climbed by taking the second road to your left on the Dublin side of Kilbeheny where there is a signpost marked "Galtycastle".
Follow this minor road uphill ignoring the turn-off to the right (also signposted Galtycastle) and taking the right hand fork at the Y junction after it.
After travelling a further 1.2 kms on this tarred road it turns 90 degrees to the left and downhill to a farmyard.
Park on the roadside at this turn R86912 19635 A (room for 3-4 cars) and you will notice a rough track in front of you on leading past a new house and up towards the hillside.
Follow this track past the house and an abandoned mobile home and hop the fence to your left to pick up a rough forestry track also running uphill.
After following the forestry track for a short distance it turns sharply downhill.
Cross the wire fence to your right and onto open hillside to reach the summit of Monabrack
Continue north to the Galty main ridge and a short detour to the east will bring you to the summit .A fine circuit can be had by taking in Lyracappul and the Knockaterriffs on the return leg Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/31/comment/4791/
