Short Summary created by thomas_g,  3 May 2013
Barraboy is best reached from the col between Esk and Barraboy which can be reached from the Beara way. It's also possible to access from the east but it's a long damp walk from Priests leap.
Views are very good south to the sea and North towards Barraduff. Knockboy is clearly visible to the East. Trackback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/579/comment/5338/
