Access issues
Short Summary created by Colin Murphy  10 Aug 2021
As of August 2021 there are severe access issues with this small hill. Previously access could be had from Bunowen beach, just to the south, but halfway up you encounter a new, high barbed wire fence along with threatening warning signs. The historic castle is also apparently in private ownership so also remains inaccessible at this time. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/5025/comment/19489/
