Worth the short walk up, less steep turf and stone path.

We did this on roasting hot day after going up and down Mt. Leinster by road. Nice walk up. Legs welcomed the stretch and walk on turf and rock after the steep tarmac road down the bigger mountain. Two false peaks before arriving at cairn on top. Nice views around. Great on fine day. Good small challenge for young and old. Shared hillside with some very relaxed and calm cattle and sheep besides a few humans. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/412/comment/23607/
