Lots of Uaignis
Short Summary created by thomas_g,  8 Nov 2013
This peak can be approached from all sides, but the southern & western side are the most accessible, both of which can be accessed from the Kerry Way at Gowlane. Access is also possible from the green road which passes Cummeenslaun Lake on the NE. The N face is very steep, and probably best approached from the Lough Nagannee side (NW). The easiest decent is via the south where you can handrail a fence.
Fine views in all directions await you, but do be aware that the summit plateau is flat and very wet in winter. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/436/comment/5195/
