This 487m high hill in West Cork is very easy to reach. There is plenty of space for parking on the main public road at W142 717 B. Then you just West walk up the dirt track as outlined by mart in his comment. After about 15 minutes, you're up by the trig point. By the way, this seems to be a very well used track so access should not be a problem.........Mweelin is a good vantage point from which to take in the views of West Cork and Kerry. To the West, you can see the jagged outline of the Reeks and the broad summit of Mangerton. The Northern horizon is bounded by Crohane, the Paps, Caherbarnagh and Mullaghanish. To the South, Nowen, Sheehy Mor and the small peaks of Douce and Doughill dominate the skyline. In the valley below, the River Lee having just left Gougane Barra, now forms a series of small lakes as it begins it's journey towards Cork City. Overall, very easy to get to with great views.
