Both the Irish and English names refer to the characteristic shape of this hill, which looks as if a chunk has been bitten out of it between the main peak and Little Rock. Éile is the Irish name for Ely O’Carroll Country. It also appears in Durlas Éile (Thurles). See Máire MacNeill, 'The Festival of Lughnasa' (pp. 217-20) for details of the festive assembly on the Devil's Bit which took place on 'Rock Sunday' in late July.   Devilsbit Mountain is the 624th highest place in Ireland.

The Devils Loop.
by sandman  20 Jul 2015
Depending on the off road ability of your vehicle you can park without obstructing anyone at S0581075238 A which will give you the option of a quick up and down to the trig or a pleasant Loop Walk visiting Little Rock with its cross and statue. If you decide on the loop which i did in an anti-clockwise direction access is via the gate into the forest , go left and left again which will take you to Little Rock after which you can follow a well defined track to the summit trig.

An odd accolade
by Bunsen7  12 May 2017
Quite apart from anything else, this hill has the rather dubious accolade of having taken up a two-page spread in a Irish company's annual report during the 1990s. It's a funny old world! Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/513/comment/19503/

This summit completely exceeded my expectations. Views of the surrounding area is second to none. If it was a bit less misty and cloud cover, perhaps Keeper Hill would be more prominent. The route from Devil's bit to Little Rock is a bit tricky (see Simon's walk description) but do ascend Little Rock if you fancy a little afternoon scramble (nothing hard).

A lovely shortish walk with great views at the top. We strayed to the right of the path though and ended up in a large field with beware of the bull sign. No sign of the bull. I think I scared him off.
It was not too easy to find the carpark. Its not as well signed as you might think but the drive around the Tipperary countryside is great anyway if you get lost :) Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/513/comment/3274/
