Marlay Park - Fairy Castle - Johnny Foxes
by a147pro  2 Apr 2011
The great thing about the Dublin mountains is their accessibility. Anyone living in Dublin can be there really quick, kind of, I've decided to take the afternoon off quick. In my case 15 minutes from Inchicore and, feck it, I decided to take the whole day off.

The problem with the Dublin Mountains is, well, they're not really mountains. I mean literally, they're less than 600m high. Nonetheless good for a quick fix. Drove to Marlay park and was up to the Fairy Castle in two hours. You could just drive to Kilmashogue Forest if you want to cut out the first bit. From there its easy enough walking up through unfortunately disfigured forest along an unfortunately wide and unattractive forest road. The views from the top are nice though and there are plenty of options for wandering around up there.

It was exceptionally windy yesterday which meant the best option for me was to head down to Johnny Foxes for some Chowder and Stew. The Dublin Mountain Way didn't quite offer the most direct route so I cut across fields at the point that the way headed into the forest and got out on the road a few hundered yards short of the bar. Quick slap up feed with a latte for good measure (no pint mind) and tried to walk back the actual Dublin Mountain Way. Missed the turn off for the walk, presumably because I was concentrating so hard on the difficult task of staying alive on the insanely thin and blind cornered roads that the designers of the Dublin Mountain Way decided to run the route along. In fairness to them, there was prob no other option in terms of private property and people's constitutional rights and all that. So ended up trying to kill myself all the way to Lamb Doyles when the roads became a little more business like and slightly less dangerous.

All in all a pleasant afternoon's walking. Not really mountains, but good for a quick fix and on a sunny day there'd be nice views and plenty of nice food options. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/382/comment/6295/

Pleasant walk and suitable for children
by tmsr  2 Jun 2012
Pleasant walk from Three Rock mast area. We've accessed it from Kilmashogue car park and from Ticknock car park. The latter is more direct. although much busier with mountain bikers and dog walkers etc. Recent works around the cairn at the summit of Fairy Castle have been undertaken to protect it from erosion apparently...

Red Grouse near the summit.
by BarnaneGoat  10 Feb 2017
I climbed here a few days ago from the east along the Dublin Mountains Way. The summit was shrouded in mist and we went astray at one point. I later discovered this was the result of a way marker post which didn't have any arrow plates. Now and again we caught some views when the mist cleared for a minute or two. The highlight was spotting some red grouse in the heather on our descent. This is a rare and endangered bird and I didn't expect to see it on this mountain as there were quite a lot of walkers about, even for a cold Wednesday in February.
