A quick loop with fine views.

Park at W274884 B at a wide gateway (room for 4 cars). Follow the Duhallow way NW past an old ruined manor house soon reaching a wood. Follow the trail markers for Claragh loop which brings you to eastern side of Claragh (W260890 C). A slippery (in Jan) but easy climb along the line of the fence to the cross awaits (which is not at the top so it can be seen from Millstreet). Continue on to the summit trig point and mound of rocks for fine views of Caherbarnagh, Musheramore and Mullaghanish. Continue west down the slope to rejoin the Duhallow way and follow it north to contour around the mountain and back to the wood where you started your climb up. About 10k - 2.5 hours at a moderate pace. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/615/comment/6665/
