Our first visit
by paddyobpc  25 Jan 2017
Slievereagh, listed as #Slievereagh465m on The Gribbon List (http://www.highpointireland.com/the-gribbon-list.html) was another climb we used as a point scorer for gribboneer-of-the-year http://www.highpointireland.com/gribboneer-of-the-year.html. It was a new one for us again, not too far away from us and visible from Seefin and Carrigeenamronety which we frequently climb. Dillon(dillonkdy) and myself followed the route described by “ahogan” on here, a straightforward route but others have described approaches through the forest also. We measured a height gain of about 170m on this route, about 5.5 Km up and back over a leisurely 1.25 Hours. Our first climb of Slievereagh was on 18 December 2016 and we returned to the summit again on 30 Dec 2016. At the top there is a biscuit tin containing a diary for walkers to record their visit.

To drive or not to drive?
by TommyV  11 Feb 2019
Geo's directions are spot on. At the aforementioned Coilte forest entrance there is a sign staing no unauthorized vehicles beyond this point as the gate may close at any point. However as the Lazy Dog Gun Club is located within this track and members of the public can access this club, I can't imagine this gate would be closed. To further boost my confidence to drive in further rather than walk I saw two cars coming out of the woods and another enter so I drove to within 750 metres of the summit for a quick easy bag. Nice views of the snow covered Galty's on the day I visited. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/563/comment/20417/

In the footsteps of Our Lady
by acorn  16 Aug 2013
Finding myself on the Ballylanders side of Slievereagh I followed ahogan's Holy Mary directions which brought me without problem to the mast enclosure. Then it's just a matter of slipping around to the left of the fence where there is a worn path to take you up the final 10m of ascent to the rocky summit.
