Bag it as part of the cliff walk
by TommyV  14 Dec 2018
I technically haven't bagged the summit of this hill as it wasn't listed on MV when I did the Ciiffs of Moher walk, but it would be a very small detour to bag it. I was no more than 50 meters from the trig point without realizing it was there, my gaze was too busy looking West to notice it. I'm writing the post to mention the cliff walk. It's not a summit but has to be done by any outdoor enthusiast. Either direction from Liscanor to Doolin or vice vera is a magical experience and apart from the section at the visitor centre you will likely be enjoying the views by youself or with friends and not thousands of tourists fresh off the buses.
