An easy road with distant balcony views but nearby clutter
Short Summary created by simon3, jackill  8 Jan 2013
This is an easy walk starting from the large carpark at W34900 86100 A and following the track (which is show as part of the Dulhallow way on the Discovery map) past bog works along the access road to Seefins mast covered summit. There are interesting views south to others of the Boggeraghs. The summit itself has telecoms towers with very scruffy ancillary equipment, and, unusually, a rotatable amateur radio aerial which is controlled remotely.

If you are worried about the no access signs then make a bee-line from the car-park along the line of a fence to the 486m spot height and on to Seefin itself. There is a track indicating that others have taken this route before. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/483/comment/5242/
