It's possible to drive to the top of this hill, but if you don't have an SUV or some sort of 4x4 I wouldn't recommend it. Park at the start of the road before Lough Ben as mentioned by three5four0. Leave the hiking boots in the car as a pair of light runners will be just fine for this walk. If you have a hybrid or mountain bike bring it too as a spin down the hill looks like a lot of fun. The views at the top are lovely but the masts and in particular the burnt out cars do take from the experience. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/686/comment/20619/
