Easy but a great view.

If you drive up the road this has to be a contender for the easiest summit in Ireland, but it's well worth doing for the superb view. Wicklow to Donegal, with the Meath lowlands spread out like a map and the Mournes looking splendid just across the way. The geological notice board is interesting too. Pic is Slieve Foye from the road up - my camera couldn't do the summit view justice. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/434/comment/19685/
