I better start earning my points (rather than just submitting photographs of the beauties I meet)
I have climbed Moylussa many times. On my own I did not experience any problems but when I climbed it with friends we experienced a few unwelcome comments from local farmers.
As one of your contributors mentioned you can climb it via Glenngalliagh Mountain. You go to Kilbane, then up the East Clare Way for a few miles which you can easily drive. Park your car at the top of this road which, incidentally, leads you to Killaloe. If, however, you decide to continue driving on this East Clare Way, after 2/3 k/m downhill you will observe two tracks to the left which are cul de sacs D (R639 732)
and E (R654 730)
. These tracks, particularly the second one, E (R654 730)
, will allow you a more direct route to Moylussa but for the present I would not advise that you take either as one or two unwelcoming farmers are in the area. Anyway, after parking, at the top you will see a gate (north) leading through the forestry. Enter there and a track for 15 mins will take you to the bogland F (R636 749)
and your climb ahead to Glengalliagh. You will see Moylussa over to the northeast. You should get over to Moylussa in an hour or a little more.
This route is an alternative to going up from the Killaloe side.You can return the same way or if you have organised transport you can be picked up in a vey pleasant pub called The Pipers Inn (it's a few miles from The Killaloe UL Marine Centre), as this was climbed by me in 2006.
