For the first I want to write there is nothing about a challenge on this summit. There is very wide and comfortable path leading to the top so I can recommend it to families. It is very short and easy stroll up. We climbed up together with my boyfriend in very windy weather accompanying with a heavy rain so it was like a challenge for us.The walk starts behind the Nine Stones car park. You can take there the road from Myshall,what is very nice and narrow road just for one car. On your right will be a nice view piont with a car park from where you can see your next goal and Mt. Leinster.Then go down and on the T-crossroad turn right and continue up the car park of the Nine Stones. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/412/comment/2631/
