Nothing can be better after a long working day
by Sarkuns  18 Aug 2013
I left my car at Coillte car park (outside beside the road because it was after 6 pm) and I was on my way.
Sometimes a little bit steep and rocky but Perfectly developed path leads strait up to the top. Excellent even in bad weather conditions. Path is made mostly from crushed gravel and large sandstone stone peaces which ends in a boardwalk. So there is no danger of slippery or muddy trail and I need to say that the path is very well marked with markers.

So putting all together:
I believe this is a perfect short and pleasant walk with conclusion of a breath taking 360 degrees view on Dublin and surrounding mountains. It took me only 25 minutes to get up (descending because of my knee wasn't so quick) so it is a perfect route after hard working day just to switch off for a little bit and end the day on a good mood.

Surtr on Tibradden Mountain, 2008

Having not been up Tibradden for a couple of years I found the new boardwalk and gravel trail a little disappointing. While it was never remotely difficult to start with I think having a path to the summit removes all the fun! Still some great views from the top. Walked up from the carpark and followed the trail to the Wicklow Way and saw a few deer on the way. Not too keen to undertake that walk today I turned back. When I got to the burial site again there were a couple of fellas doing some ritual; purple flag pinned to the side with candles and chanting! All very strange!!! Linkback:

Picture: Mist behind the cairn
Easily accessible and a short climb
by tmsr  3 Jun 2012
Accessed it easily from the car park off the road to Pine Forest at the bend coming from Edmonstown/ Cruagh Rd Ref: O 13848 22710 A. Car park open on weekends and bank holidays, but beware it closes at 5pm, although it's well signposted. Mixture of forest and exposed terrain on the way up. Interesting cairn at the top with spiral celtic design on rock looking suspiciously modern.... Views were a bit limited by low cloud and mist on typical Irish June evening, but kids enjoyed the walk and hiding in the fort (spot head in picture!). Boardwalk has been recently completed around the summit, and there's a pleasant stroll across to Fairy Castle and two Rock if you're looking for a loop. Linkback:
