Seefin is an easy stroll from the car park at the pass between Seefin and its higher neighbour, Musheramore. The map suggests a L-shaped route along the Duhallow Way, but the newly built private road which this used to follow is signposted "No Unauthorised Access". The Duhallow Way has been redirected along the public road, which represents a considerable detour for those aiming for Seefin. However, there is nothing to prevent you taking a bee-line from the car-park along the line of a fence to the 486m spot height, and thence on to Seefin itself. There is a track indicating that others have taken this route before. There are, no doubt, more challenging ways of getting there, but the peak hardly justifies the effort. The Boggeragh Seefin is one of many hills so named throughout Ireland and all associated with Fionn Mac Cumhaill, but here Fionn has been ousted from his throne in the name of modern technology: the summit is crowned by a mobile phone mast. It is however accessible, free from conifers and has a view, none of which can be said for neighbouring Seefin E Top. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/483/comment/3454/
