I also approached from the Nire car park. Note that the track through the farm has a "No Dogs" sign, though the route via The Gap doesn't seem to be restricted. A Carrignagower - Coumfea North Top loop from the car park is a 10 km loop, which took me just over three hours. Photo shows the view over Fauscoum from the summit.
