Coastal Hill

Parking is available beside some field gates located at L82549 82568 starA. Once thru the uphill gate, turn immediately left and access the hill via a small pedestrian gate at the side of a sheep pen for a heather free ascent to the summit located at L82822 82561 starB. Nice views from the summit. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/5057/comment/19720/
