From the south, start at around V77919 81491 starB in the Bridia Valley using the Kerry Way via Beendarrig to gain higher ground.
Expect heathery rough ground on all sides.
The views here are much the same as with nearby Beann Dubh with which it will usually be walked. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/577/comment/5336/
